While we still have time to fantasise before we are interrupted by grim reality, what do you imagine Bahrain's game plan is? It's a given that they want to win the stage with Landa, but with Novak up the road, they can move before Fedaia. A descent attack with Bilbao and Landa on Pordoi? Unfortunately I don't think Bilbao is strong enough to help Landa if they attack uphill. Maybe Bilbao will move on Pellegrino either uphill or downhill?

I think Bilbao should move over the Pellegrino, just force action from Ineos. If he gets chased down, no bother, Novak still up the road.

The false flat before the steep in Fedaia would be very good for someone like Bilbao/Novak to help Landa, who should try to create a small group by the foot of that climb I think. If it doesn't work it doesn't work, if he's able to place hindley/carapaz on the limit pre Fedaia then he can take a lot out of them.

That said, it's all down to legs, really.
