^^Yes the KBK cancellation should certainly make this a lot more interesting! Riders fresher, possibility of swaps and last chance to impress for the classics teams before another spell of training.

Sky's team looks pretty solid:
EISEL Bernhard Austria
HAYMAN Mathew Australia
PUCCIO Salvatore Italy
RASCH Gabriel Norway
ROWE Luke United Kingdom
SUTTON Christopher Australia
SWIFT Ben United Kingdom
THOMAS Geraint United Kingdom

I think we need a good match up.

Looks like a fairly steep 3k? Followed by a rapid descent to a 1k flat finish? And they're doing it five times in a 20k loop?

Can you tell I'm guessing?

Hoping for Feillu and Ravard to go well here. Ciolek seems most likely to win.

Demare is riding, surely he's also a favorite right?
