Degenkolb can score 4 or 5 wins with this field.

Sky is about GC and Liquigas is weak and Viviani, Davis and the Lotto pair is not at same league.

If Farrar were clever he would came here to score. There are 11 uphill finishes but many of them are single-climb stages

Farrar should definitely have come here, the only wins he has had this year have been TTT. He hasn't won a sprint since his tour stage win last year.

They aren't good

JEANNESSON, Arnold FDJ + 51''
MARTIN, Tony OPQ + 1' 49''
Tony Martin losing almost 2 minutes on a flat stage?:confused:
Did he crash or something?
 
Pathetic sprinting field, now the flat stages will be even more boring.

Anyway, does anyone have a link to where you can watch those Universal Sports 'trailers' (like the one Froome's GF posted) as they are pretty amusing.

It's fun to see Contador's aggressiveness showing already. Obviously it's way too early to see what kind of shape he will be in for late mountain stages. I find people's confidence in his overall victory rather odd. He's hardly raced this year. He's got a huge challenge ahead. That said, so does Froome what with already having the TdF in his legs. Neither is likely in the very best possible shape for the Vuelta. Should be interesting... :)
