The field for prologue is just adequate. Gretsch still has the best shot.

Yeah, you'd think he'd be a great prologue rider, based on his track background.

The thing is, he isn't. Gretsch for the repeat. Or maybe Janse van Rensburg?

Coppel will go well and then of course Engoulvent (stage).
Valverde will be hard to dethrone, but a couple of the top teams are sending what appears to be double leadership:

Astana: Brajkovic+ Fuglsang
Lotto: JVBD + Jelle
Eus: Anton + Nieve
Blanco: Gesink + Mollema

Looks like we have a potential GC race in the making.

Movistar's combination of Piti & Quintana may be the most dangerous here I would say. Valverde won this race last year as well so he should be "extra" motivated.

König for Netapp - Endura will be competitive, if he isn't preparing for Giro. I think he could even do podium if he's in form.

Spanish tv showing this?

Something for addicts sine the disappointment of no live Oman coverage.

Valverde has had much racing in build up to this but he normally doesnt need it.

Barta could do well in prologue, he's above average time trialist. But maybe it's too short for him.

Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

I think Bobridge finished almost dead last in the Giro prologue last year, so this is an improvement. The guy is just not a great prologue rider, but keeps being named as one.

edit: lol, Quintana with the same time as Bobridge.
