What's the first European race to expect some Colombian fireworks this season?

Voeckler will be ready.
Some of the roads at this race are fantastic. Now we need live TV production please.

in tirreno henao and uran supposedly have a free role. certainly catalunya will be a colombian firework, depending on the course of course, quintana, henao, uran, ospina should all ride there. serpa I think is still injured for a while

No, that was Murcia.

Quintana was a minor bit part player here.

Unfortunately the course is the worst stage of last year, with the worst stage of the year before.

He's right. Quintana only played a very minor role.

Cheers. Looking forward to see them in a free role. Especially Quintana.

I shall go for Pinot. Simon, Slagter, Voeckler, Bardet and Visconti i think could also go well.

Hopefully Dan Martin can have a nice ride too.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

Yes, he was there on the penultimate lap, but when the race was won he was nowhere.

He was good, certainly for a neo pro, but to say this was the JTL vs. Quintana show... no. It was the JTL show.
