So it's a 12km TT vs an MTF that's doesn't even look 4% on average? Weak

While a few more spicy stages would obviously be great, I think the MTF will create pretty big gaps. It's long (15km? 20km?) and it's the first race of the season. I can also imagine that the road conditions are not quite the Nürburgring. Don't think the TT will be too significant for the overall.

Compared to San Luis, San Juan is more hotter and arid, plus some of the flat stages are exposed to crosswinds

I see Rujano has his own team now? Awesome!

Rujano is only 34, plenty of time to go back to Europe and win a GT! :p

And Jimmi is back to light it up again! Giro has a good field this year, but the Giro got nothing on Tachira this year. :cool:

Interesting to follow the next crop of Venezuelan talent on home soil! Jose Mendoza {1994}, Anderson Paredes {1995}, Edwin Torres {1997}, Orluis Aular {1996} for example.

What do we know about this Ivan Ramiro Sosa?

So far he is doing very well at Táchira, finished 3rd on a stage and today he was 4th at the MTF of La Grita. He is leading the youth classification and he should be in the top-5 of the GC.

He turned 19 on Halloween and rides for Androni.
Last year he rode for the Italian U23 team Maltinti Lampadari and finished in the top 10 in every single Italian race that he raced besides Ruota d'Oro that was won by Albanese.
http://firstcycling.com/rider.php?r=61639&y=2016
He also won the Ossario del Pasubio - Schio, he already got impressive results in Italian U23 races at the age of 18 and seems to be a big talent.

ivan sosa was born in fugasuga cundinamarca and he was very strong uphill in the vuelta porvenir in 2015 , winning the queen stage.
he is a real good climber and seems able to improve against the clock.
last year he was very deceiving in the tour de l' avenir.
he has yet to complete his physical maturation but he is a good prospect .
i hope androni will give him the time to grow without too much stress and pressure. he has yet to turn 20, being born in 1997.

I wrote a piece about him on my site about a year ago: http://web.archive.org/web/20160701052613/http:/www.cyclingupdates.com/the-next-colombian-cycling-stars-part-4/#more-2628
(looks a bit weird as my site is gone but this is from the archive).

In 2016 he rode in Italy and did well in some very mountainous races he won one: http://elite-under23.ciclismo.info/gara_elite_under23_20434_2016_06_25_schio__vi_79_schio_ossario_del_pasubio_under_23.htm
and got 2nd in two others (of which one he thought he won but got pipped on the line)

Very talented climber! I personally thought he was not ready for turning pro yet (that he had to grow on other aspect such as speed in the pro peloton and speed on the flat without being spend for the climbs) but his start is very hopeful

Sorry to be a pedant, the Nürburgring is famous for having notoriously bad road conditions (at least the old one is)
