Uran is the next to confirm that he isn't riding in the national championships this month. Up for grabs for Chaves now.

Pantano, Henao and Henao will be riding! Checho in the tricolor would be amazing.

Yeah, Sergio or Chaves would be good (I assume Checho is Sergio...) Pentano wouldn't be bad either.

Gaviria will ride the national road race: "Yesterday I made a bet with Davide Bramati, who promised that if I win a stage here, then I get green light to line up at the National Championships on February 26th. I'm delighted to have won this bet and get the ticket for Colombia. It would be a huge pride to wear this beautiful jersey at least once in my career and I hope it will happen this year", a smiling Gaviria concluded after his maiden victory in Portugal.

We should do a mini poll about who will win. If it was shorter I'd say Henao. But because of the length probably Chaves.

Is it really impossible for the Gav? The climbs are really, really short. He could definitely be a beast up quite a few of those, Degenkolb style, but maybe replicating it throughout the whole race is a bit too much.

A 240 kilometer race without team mates and a total climbing of around 5.000 meters? This will be a real tough one. It is up and down all day long.

1. It was already cut to 219Km (the return will be at the 83rd st not at 92nd). However, the local season just started last weekend and domestic riders are not used to these distances. So look for "international" cyclists not those riding in the local scene.
2. The climbing is not too much and less for Colombian standards. It's not for climbers, last year a sprinter without a team (Edwin Avila, just hired by Illuminate and without a kit) won on a parcours designed for Quintana (and he being local and having like 30 "teammates"... 3 riders from the WT, the continental team and a couple of teams from Boyacá that owe him a lot... Just look at footage how he was giving orders the whole race).

I think Gaviria has a chance if he picks the right wheels. He has to pass the last hill closer to Chaves and Henao.
Pantano might be the outsider... He can climb and has a good kick

I suppose there's no chance of a livestream of the road race anywhere online? Would love to see some of this one.

Also: mods should un-ban Ryo for the one day. He should be here for this.

If you have RCN Internacional channel you might watch it. Not sure if they will broadcast it through YouTube.

Thanks. I don't have the channel, but will check YouTube. Hopefully someone will stream it somewhere, if RCN itself doesn't.
