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.
