I think that two of favourites are in the movistar team, Quintana and Rui Costa.( we will see what freedom has Nairo..)
I hope this is the edition of Surprises!(Ulissi,Locke,Hivert,Talansky..)
If Quintana and Talansky pulled a L'Avenir that would be be perfectly fine with me.

I also think that the Movistar duo will fare well, and even though it is Costa with number 1 on his back, I expect Quintana to have a free role/co-captain. I hope we will see some action on stage 4.
the only reason costa has got number 1 on his back is because of alphabetical order. when do people f'n learn...

I know it is common, but I didn't noticed it as it didn't really surprise me (that Costa would wear number 1). Will be more attentive next time

If Rui Costa were called Zulu Zimbabwe he'd still have the no. 1 on his back. He's the obvious leader. He could well be overshadowed by Quintana, of course.

The riders won't even go through a single street in Paris. Since many years, the race starts in the outskirts of Paris.

Kreuziger is doing TA instead of PN. Roche will be more or less on his own when it goes uphill then.

Also the reason Kreuziger is doing TA instead of PN seems to be that Majka seems to have problems with his knee once again. Bad news for him regarding the Giro if that is true.

Welcome to the forum! You'll find a lot of company here in your admiration of Quintana. Both he and Costa have bright futures and I too am looking forward to seeing Quintana ride for himself in the major events. It appears that he will have that opportunity in this year's Paris Nice. He appears to be coming into the race in good form and should be one of the strongest climbers and I hear he is pretty good in uphill tt's so that should set him up for a successful week of racing provided he can avoid any setbacks as a result of getting caught out in any echelons.

Not sure he needs much help. Stay with the leaders and see if something can be done at the very end of the key stages. Then give everything in the MTF TT.

The team should be able to protect Roche on the flat/hilly parts.
