Agreed that it's a very good course for Alaphilippe.
Really? Maybe I don’t understand Alaphilippe’s full capacities, but Stage 5 looks like a diesel climber/high altitude climber’s ideal. Does that fit Alaphilippe?

I'm not sure stage 5's final climb is long enough to for anyone to gain a lot of time on a good climber. I could be wrong, but I don't see a stage where a pure climb is going to drop a puncheur.

With Alaphilippe the bigger question is he just stage hunting or is going to try to win GC. I'm not sure he really cares about racing for GC and it happier as a stage hunter, so there's that as well.

My thinking was:
Stage 1: sprint - neutral for GC
Stage 2: puncheur - good for Ala
Stage 3: short TT - good for Ala
Stage 4: sprint - neutral
Stage 5: very gradual climb - reduced group sprint - neutral for Ala (unless there are bonus seconds, when it is good for him)
Stages 6 and 7: neutral

The only possible problem for him (if he is aiming for GC and in good form) is the altitude, as you mention. But he seemed okay at altitude in Colombia Oro y Paz last year).
 
Alto Colorado is a false flat, following wheels should be enough to survive for anyone that can climb a bit unless he really suffers the high altitude, last year there was also a lot of wind on the climb.

I'm pretty sure that Alaphilippe will go for the GC, if we exclude the GTs he always go for the GC in stage races even if sometimes he cracks or fades in the process when there is too much climbing for him.
 
I'm not sure how much Alaphilippe actually suffers from altitude. Obviously he's not the best climber in the world. He's one of the top puncheurs, but does struggle when there is too much climbing. That's different from suffering from altitude.

I haven't been able to watch any racing on the climb so I will take your word for it that typically Following wheels will be all thats necessary for anyone going for GC. But It's still hard (for me) to ignore that even though the 15 k average 4.4 %, the final 12 km are above 2000 meters going up to above 2500 meters. Nothing to sneeze at, if someone decides to push the pace, non?
 
I'm actually looking forward how the young guys will be doing. Obviously Evenepoel but also Luis Villalobos and Gino Mäder. Mäder could develop into a pretty exciting racer.

In this modern era, 4.4% is very gentle gradient. Even if it's very long and over 20 km. Having a strong team in more important on such a soft mountain.

Diesel climbs are usually 5%-6.9%.

I was going to say the same. I have the last two on my team in Youth CQ Ranking Game. Particularly, Mäder should be considered among the top 5 climbers present in the race.

First race of the season. In a new team and as a pro. Im eager to see Mäder get going also though, I have him in the CQ Game for the year.

I would say that a nearly 40-minute effort might be the biggest issue for Alaphilippe

Startlist was already posted above ;)
the back numbers weren't and there were some changes
Fair enough, but maybe it would have been interesting to add that information to your post, so that people wouldn't think that it's the same information.
Fair enough, but maybe it might have occurred to you that 1) a start list posted 25 Jan 2019 07:23 could not have been final and 2) I might therefore have a good reason for posting that link.
