So we have two sprints, an ITT and two stages that look more like they are for the puncheurs than the pure climbers. Interesting.

It looks like LRP will win this bike race with ease.

It certainly does. LRP will absolutely annihilate Malhao, but I don't think he will be strong enough to shake them on Foia. He doesn't need to tho as long as he does as expected on the TT and Malhao.

I would be surprised if he is not in the top 10. He should be there.

Brandão to win on Malhão.
Papi Nocentini could also do rather well.

Whoever wins this race will always have to cope with the fact that Balarcon had no interest in starting and therefore his win is invalid.

Yes.

The link at the ES Player was unavalaible at the moment, but they started coverage right after the finish of Ruta del Sol, thanks.
I guess it will be Jungels vs Porte?

The Day Team Sky disappears from cycling I'll truly enjoy watching a mountainous Grand Tour stage again -- former Milan-San Remo winner I interviewed.
