Also he needs to be careful, given that he just come from Trentino and the workload acumulated he can't go very deep otherwise he may do too much work which is not optimal for his preparation for Giro, which is all he is thinking atm he is not thinking about winning LBL specially after winning Trentino, he can now control the efoorts for the perfect prepraration

Honestly, i don't expect nibali to win. I'm sure he'll make a big attack, and get caught. I just hope for a good race, and that simon gerrans doesn't win.
Nibali has the form. And if we take a look at other favorites, I think he's better than them at the moment.
Also, I think he shouldn't attack like last year. Shouldn't try anything solo. Wait for selected group and than make his move.

From what we've seen so far, and know about Froome's Classics pedigree, he and Sky can't be considered like favorites.

Sky classics campaign failed but this is very different, LBL suits Froome perfectly and he clearly has the form i'am just not sure if ge has race rythm because he hasnt raced that much recently

I think something less dynamic and more steady would suit him better. Something like San Sebastian or Il Lombardia.

Use your own money on that one because it certainly wouldn't get any of mine. Another Sky fail on the Classics so far, apart from Henao.
Actually i do have money on Froome, on Costa, on Kwiatkowski and on Pieter Weening
Surely one this riders wil win tomorrow, i have 2% of the field covered :D

Don't know how LBL suits Froome perfectly. Since he became unbelieveably good in 2011, he's been purely a stage racer - long climbs and TTs.

What's Froome done in any hilly race that make you think LBL suits him? He'll probably be working for Henao in LBL, that would be the smart thing to do.

:D I have 3 e/w bets riding for 'field coverage' too. One of them is the same as yours, but it certainly isn't the Froomedog ;)

250km with climbs, isn't that perfect for him?
He has big punch too, he can probably outclimb Rodriguez there giving his injury

Froome is good at mountain climbs, those aren't the climbs he will face at LBL.
