Hell of a ride by Ricardo Escuela, up with the big boys. Kudos to Rosas as well, that's better then expected.

Navardauskas proving his worth already - he will be so valuable to Nibali this year I feel.

Any idea who is expected to line up? I'd love to see that jersey in Europe.

Me too. I want to see that jersey at the GT's. They definitely thought about that this year with 240 kms. That is a hard circuit. I wish all WT riders were there. I think Chaves and Henao could be battling it.

Well, last year he tremendously descreased his wheelsucking and failed to get a single win.

His formula doesn't fail and he's back at it. Do I like it? No. Should he do it? Yes.

Nice to see that Babyface is now 2nd in GC.

I like the way he does it. Always alone, yet he gets the job done, in a way so purely cynical that it becomes beautiful. He transcends wheelsucking :D

Grande Sevilla!! Always consistent in these kind of races. Great showing.

Also a really strong Torres. Which is not a surprise because he's always strong at the beginning of the season. He's even better then he was last year. Onfortunately we're not able to see his attacking style in Il Giro. What a disgrace! :(

Cool to see Rui Costa winning again, the first victory since that all star stage win against Valverde, Nibali, Froome in the Dauphine a couple of years ago.

It would be cool to see him get his Liege but there are some really stacked teams like Quickstep or Sky with like 4 potential winners each. I'd be happy with a stage win in the Giro and the Vuelta to make the Grand Slam :)

Also as a portuguese, nice debut from Rafael Reis for Caja Rural in this race and Ruben Guerreiro in Australia!
