Interestingly EBH is on the start-list for Sky, even though Sky originally said their entire classic's squad would be going to a training camp in Tenerife instead of P-N or T-A. Weird.

Perhaps Edvald doesn't want to go to Tenerife this year either.

Could also just be the Sky website mixing up Boswell (who originally was scheduled to start) and Boasson...
Boswell is now listed on the Sky site as riding Paris-Nice. EBH heads to Tenerife...

Agreed I think Roche would still have been team leader if Roman had been there. His performances so far this year have been promising albeit the races havent been that high in star quality. He was still in with a shout of winning both races going into the last stage. Hopefully he can get it right this year and pick up a few stages and go well in the classics also!

Yes, but Kreuziger > Roche, only he was ill.

Hi everyone!

I´m new here!
I´m a basque boy,follower of cyclism, and I want see what people think about cycling out of here.
I think that two of favourites are in the movistar team, Quintana and Rui Costa.( we will see what freedom has Nairo..)
I hope this is the edition of Surprises!(Ulissi,Locke,Hivert,Talansky..)

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I also think that the Movistar duo will fare well, and even though it is Costa with number 1 on his back, I expect Quintana to have a free role/co-captain. I hope we will see some action on stage 4.

If Quintana and Talansky pulled a L'Avenir that would be be perfectly fine with me.

the only reason costa has got number 1 on his back is because of alphabetical order. when do people f'n learn...

If Rui Costa were called Zulu Zimbabwe he'd still have the no. 1 on his back. He's the obvious leader. He could well be overshadowed by Quintana, of course.

The riders won't even go through a single street in Paris. Since many years, the race starts in the outskirts of Paris.

Kreuziger is doing TA instead of PN. Roche will be more or less on his own when it goes uphill then.

Also the reason Kreuziger is doing TA instead of PN seems to be that Majka seems to have problems with his knee once again. Bad news for him regarding the Giro if that is true.

Welcome to the forum! You'll find a lot of company here in your admiration of Quintana. Both he and Costa have bright futures and I too am looking forward to seeing Quintana ride for himself in the major events. It appears that he will have that opportunity in this year's Paris Nice. He appears to be coming into the race in good form and should be one of the strongest climbers and I hear he is pretty good in uphill tt's so that should set him up for a successful week of racing provided he can avoid any setbacks as a result of getting caught out in any echelons.
