Sevilla struggling with those heights is a thing of the past. He's done extremely well in all the stages in Ibague (La Linea) the past few years.

Hmm... according to these official-ish (?) looking profiles there's no Picacho (instead they just do a 110km microstage to Bucaramanga)...
A shame. There's a lot of potential for fun, challenging routes in Colombia, but the low profile of the race means they can't do it too hard because then no one will bother to come...
...then again, 40km of flat ITT and the 80km Letras MTF are quite the challenge, especially for a 2.2 race, but other than that it's just sprints and and the microstages around Bucaramanga (the 237km Sogamoso stage has some climbing, but the final 80km are almost pan-flat anyway).
(inb4 the group explodes in a million pieces in the Sogamoso stage and I'm forced to eat my words :o )

Well, without Daotec, this tread along with the race seems borderline meaningless.
Anyway, babyface will crush the field methinks.

I remember the last kms of one of the past editions being broadcasted on RCN... or whas it the Clásico RCN? I don't remember.

Probably RCN or another Colombian channel, but no international broadcast.

The original title implied that the race finished before it started. It has been corrected.

EPM won the team time trial. Duarte dealing the first blow.

That EPM team looks strong. Obviously Sevilla and co will take some beating, but maybe this will be Cano's year with a Letras MTF.

Alex Cano is his leader, so he doesn't have priority. He's probably a contender for the TT though.

Danny Osorio gets a rare chance to ride for himself now that Ortega moved to RTS. Not really a serious contender for the win but perhaps a stage win and TOP-10 on GC would be nice.
