This may be focussing on the future a bit but the Kronplatz stage may prove to be a killer for a few teams, for example i see evans as the likely victor and so he may well eliminate a lot of his own BMC team if hes not careful.

How many riders do people think the time limit will eliminate and will any teams suffer in particular?

Wait, Evans as the likely victor on a super steep climb TT?? (Sastre or climby Italians (pozzovivo, garzelli) are more likely.

Anyway, only 6 riders were "out of time" in 2008
