Not so sure about that, it's 11-12% steep and Purito's punch in this situation might just be too much for Samu, thereby not saying that he can be close and maybe then catch Purito on the flatter section. Anyhow, I give a clear advantage to J-Rod.
He is stronger but not by far.
It will all depand on the group on the bottom of Cauberg, its size and who will actually compete. I'm looking forward to seeing Samu because he always peaks for the Pais Vasco, and rides the Ardennes on the remains of form so that he never really shines in the AGR. But this year he targets the Worlds which will contain the same climbs and this is a good rehearsal. In this regard if Samu wants a medal at the Worlds he should follow Purito's attacks on 200m-11%, this is not yet the Mur de Huy (which Samu rode very good last year considering his awful position).
