Vlasov lost 26 minutes to a winner (Sivakov) last year. I know he managed to beat for example Stannard at Aosta, but I wouldn't but him as a main favorite. I mean if Cherkasov is riding it could very well be him who'll be their best GC rider at the end? That being said he probably doesn't have the best form right now, but who knows.

What about Colombians? Is Munoz starting? He was 13th last year. Luis Fernando Jimenez, recent Vuelta Colombia U23 winner also taking part, I wonder if he could show something at the tougher stages. Overall I think the GC will be very open ball game compared to last year.

Girobio.


This starlist has several mistake.

In my opinion, the main favorite is Vlasov. Then Stannard and Williams. Then the others guys.
For the sprints, I think the wheel to follow is going to be Philipsen.

It's a provisional startlist, of course it's filled with mistakes.

The problem is we have race day today and there's still no final start list. Even this provisional one just appeared yesterday. That's poor.

Morey was quicker than Affini but got relegated after starting too early.

Moschetti looks like a totally different rider compared to last year. A ton of winning sprints and now a promising TT.
Berto and Basso have an eye for talents :cool:

Thijssen celebrated too early apparently.
Philipsen is the new leader.

Has anyone seen an official result for the prologue? I can't find one on the website. The one on PCS doesn't show Diego Sevilla's time (and maybe some others, but that's the one I noticed)

Apparently Wildauer attacked on the descent before the final climb.
