Should be good; nice burn up between the 2nd tier GC guys if the TA lineup rumours are true.

Prologue, 4 sprints an ok hill/descent and MTF.

At least they kept Eze. With such a short prologue (too short, I dare say) winner definitely looks like being the top climber.

Yes it looks that the field for PN will be pretty weak compared to last years. Looking forward to see Ulissi as a leader though (not that I think he can win, bust just to see how he does).

If the top riders will keep going to TA they will need to rethink this course.

I like this course more than that of Tirreno - Adriatico.
Also, expected TA field would provide more excitement on this course.
