Ok, bring him to some hard terrain and lets see what he can do. Giro?

Would be the obvious choice but Wilco works in mysterious ways!

35km of ITT to offset a 3km climb? Route stinks.

It's like organisers have decided that to counter Zomegnan's craziness and Guillén's overdosing on MTFs they have to make every other race on the calendar totally suck for climbers.

The route sucks, however hopefully Henao takes his first win at Sky here. Martin to win this easily however.

Especially as he's also listed as doing a concurrent race, a couple of thousand miles away.

oh hell, let him do the first three stages in Oman and head for Portugal. He will likely drag a few more fans to the scene/telly for the flat stages.

I did originally make that point, but then checked and he's been delisted from Oman.

Don't worry, he'll be at the Giro this year.
