Day of truth and they're on the road. I see there's a wide variety of opinions on today's winner. I had a long think about it last night and I'm certain the stage will be won by a climber.
Here's my top 5
Vincenzo Nibali @ st
Alberto Contador @st
Domenico Pozzovivo @ 15 seconds
Peter Velits @ 35 seconds
I think Alberto may attack all he likes this time but will find it difficult staying away from a tag-team effort of SKY driving from the bottom to almost 1 kilometre to go and then Froome and Nibali chasing him down. Froome to win the uphill sprint :-)
Nibali attacked from the bottom last year. That won't work this year so he can save energy by following wheels. He knows the hill which works in his favour. Froome has a strong enough team to do real damage on the climb and Contador, well I just want him beaten, no offence to any of his fans.
At least you're honest lol
