valverde to crack on agnello



if somebody attacks him of course....

i hope nibali gets better and attacks hard on agnello.

On the contrary, Valverde to attack on Agnello and only Kruijswijk to follow
 
ok epic nerds, i need to know when was valverde's last super ride on a 2000m+ mountain.
this is why i also doubt zakarin, to be honest

again, i think only astana can attack on agnello. because if a leader goes there, he needs to send strong teamates in the breakaway to wait and help...

I think the altitude thing is a bit of a red herring regarding Valverde (even if he has used it as an excuse himself at times). He tends to get shelled when the stage has 4000m+ of climbing, which often coincides with high altitiude but not always.
If that is the case, then tomorrow should be OK for him, but saturday will be a real challenge for him to stay with the best.
 
Kruijswijk and Chaves ain't got the team strengh to control this stage. Valverde and Nibali ain't got the shape to attack Kruijswijk properly. Zakarin is far enough behind for Kruijswijk to put him on a long leash since the others need to react first anyway. Majka has been such a disgrace to everyone this Giro that when he finally attacks ain't nobody even dares to play around with Kruijswijk. Instead all of them gonna pull back Majka.

Cunego's gonna try to secure the CC. Ulissi goes out for the first TV.

Dombrowski, Ciccone, Firsanov and Foliforov might wait for tomorrow. So it's still gonna be a win out of the favorites group somehow I tend to believe.

Like I said: Kruijswijk or Zakarin for the win.
