Van Poppel, Ciolek and Thomas could possibly go well here?

"I under-evaluated him (Gerald Ciolek) a little bit. I was watching Cancellara, who was trying to break free, and maybe I did too much work," Sagan said. "Ciolek stayed in the wheels and he took my wheel to do the sprint and was able to beat me. I went too early in the sprint."

In Italy when you need a coffee you need the right barista, so you need to teach Chris [Juul Jensen] how to make the right coffee.

Nice little race. Live TV too.
Often a strong rider can get ahead on incline and snatch the win.
Could be Demare for a double if he starts.

Why did you change the profile back to the HUGE picture?
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

It came up as a broken link for me unless we changed it at the same time?

With KBK cancelled, Lotto should throw in Greipel and a leadout man and take a win here.

^^Yes the KBK cancellation should certainly make this a lot more interesting! Riders fresher, possibility of swaps and last chance to impress for the classics teams before another spell of training.

Sky's team looks pretty solid:
EISEL Bernhard Austria
HAYMAN Mathew Australia
PUCCIO Salvatore Italy
RASCH Gabriel Norway
ROWE Luke United Kingdom
SUTTON Christopher Australia
SWIFT Ben United Kingdom
THOMAS Geraint United Kingdom

I think we need a good match up.

Looks like a fairly steep 3k? Followed by a rapid descent to a 1k flat finish? And they're doing it five times in a 20k loop?

Can you tell I'm guessing?

Hoping for Feillu and Ravard to go well here. Ciolek seems most likely to win.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong
