I took a look at the Colombian Elite Road Race Course today. There are some nice little 12% kickers in two shortish back leg climbs, while the two longish first leg climbs are steadier. But there's enough flat in that second leg to rest up before those kickers, while the out leg is pretty much all up and down bar for a few flattish corners. The finish is an utter cluster madness. I don't have much faith in the lazy sons-of-troglodytes that run the federation, but I imagine even they will move up the finish when they take their first live look at it. If they leave it as is it's anyone's game and I just hope no one crashes. I have no idea how you sprint 50m downhill onto a stone bridge coming off a roundabout preceded by 500m at -7%.

As to who'll win this thing, I haven't a clue. It seems like a tough ask for Gaviria. Pantano, just to put the pixels out there.

Gold in the U23 RR goes to Robinson Lopez. Silver is for Chrystian Cardona and Jonathan Cañaveral takes bronze.

@ DNP-Old

this was on Tweeter before Quick Step confirmed his abandon of the race and that he didn't crash.

So, 8 guys in front, with what looks like 4 WT guys. Pantano, Atapuma, Dayer Quintana, and one of the Henaos, is that right?

How's Gaviria doing? What a waste to go to Colombia instead of showing up for the Belgian opener.
And hoping Henao holds on!

Looks like Sergio crashed at some point.
