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.
