Bahrain should put Zambanini, Suttilin, Pasqualon or Butrago in the breakaway, then Caruso should try something over the top. Caruso is not a guy who can take time tomorrow on the hard stage, if he is strong he will just be able to follow the best guys. He could catch some captains napping with a move today, however, and then final 20km with his teammate

I wouldn't waste Buitrago as long as there is the small possibility that Ineos just sends Arensman & Buitrago on a breakaway that succeeds because Bouwman alone can't control.

That's a certain podium spot IF it plays out. And a certain pink jersey for Ineos who can't control the race with 4 guys.

It's crazy, but worth a try.


Unless Caruso really thinks he can win the whole thing.
