thia race is all about the commentary. Remember last year?

The main commentator announced.that theu were crossing a bridge as if it was an alien invasion. The guy om the motorcycle was in tears when they got to the 40 to go mark.

Never had so much fun listening to the radio in my life.

you should listen to any south american cycling race then. the argentine races pale in comparison to the passion of colombia, venezuela, guatemala, costa rica, bolivia and some others. there is one legendary colombian announcer who does all the big races in latin america. he one time went so nuts during a race that he accidentally swallowed a fly in his throat and he choked. haha

The two MTFs are the same but that plateau to Carolina is back after not being there for 2012. Looks good.

Indeed. I also like that the four deciding stages are back-to-back.
