Kash? well, he was climbing top 15ish in those hilly stages in Australia, and he has never been much of a hilly rider, so on paper his Vuelta 2010 (16th place) form should be close

I think you're being bit optimistic with his chances here quite a lot.

Not tipping him for a win, but he could do a top 10. There isn't much competition .

However some of those Asian riders will be peaking for this race hence in ubber form to Europeans. Would be very surprised if Verona makes Top 10, however if he does, kudos to him!

Went through the start list.

GC Contenders

Kash-Astana
Stetina- Garmin
Weening- OGE
Rolland-Europcar
Nino Corredor-RTS
Tomas Gil/Jackson Rodriguez- Androni ( Androni r saying they are not here for GC and only for stage wins, but u can't rule them out)
Monsalve- Vini

So it's reasonable to expect a top 10 from verona. Don't know too much about the riders from UHC but there will be only one or two other GC contenders the max.

Level of Asian cycling is pretty weak. Morton did a top 10 as a 19 yr old in 2011.

Hossein Asgari might be Asia's best chance.

If that Verona kid is really as good as OPQS says he is, it's bound to come out somewhere, so why not in Langkawi. Marc Goos on Blanco is a climber as well, in this field he could maybe make the top-10.

Its going to be annihilation. Better to hand over the leaders jersey to Kash immediately on arrival to avoid humiliation all around.

Julian David Arredondo should go well. Hopefully he gets the nod over F. Baliani within Team Nippo!
