There are less big teams racing this year. I would have though it would be popular as prep for the Giro.

Reduced field is a pity as the race is now shown live on TV. Intense route. Looking forward to it.

Boring route. What's wrong with some real descent finishes and hilly stages? Unbalanced crap never works.

Really strong team for europcar according to official website of the race.
I'm really curious to see what Rolland will do on Punta Veleno.
Considering they might gain some time on Colnago and Androni in the TTT, he might hold on and take the GC

Hopefully Betancur can show something.

And Kessiakoff too, man, he really sucks hard so far this season. Kessiakoff was good on the steep gradients in Austria last year, let's hope he shows that again on Punto Veleno.
