I'm not convinced he'll be able to break Ayuso in this race, although Ayuso won't be able be part of a UAE tag team like in the one-day races he's ridden this year.



I think that was mostly due to the course and the fact that UAE's TT bikes are currently better than Visma's (at least on the flat). It's a shame we didn't get too see him go all out in the ITT in Galicia, so we could have had a better impression. His climbing hasn't seemed to be below par yet, so I don't think he's in bad shape. The effect from his altitude camp should also still be there.
In the Vuelta he was also sh** in the TT, but in the mountains he could drop everybody.
 
Gran Camino would tell us differently. Was dropping Bernal for fun on a bunch of cat 3 climbs, and now we see Bernal actually doing well in Paris Nice.

Also, if we compare his ITT to the 2022 Tirreno ITT where he was still best of the rest, he got 27th then on a better setup than they have now.
Yeh, I forgot about Gran Camino. I still think Ayuso might pull it off. But then again Vingo’s new team sponsor might want the win.
 
If I remember correctly from the ITT in Copenhagen Vingegaard took a lot of time on the other favorite in the corners(no, it's not sarcasm) and more tehnical sections of the route. At least it's what it felt like watching it.

No doubt though Vingegaard will be better in July. So will everyone.
Correct if i'm wrong, but i think vingegaard couldn't do even better on that TT, because it was raining, and others like van aert, pogacar and lampaert, benefited for the fact it the rain stopped and the road was less wet.

It did look like he had maybe the worst conditions of everyone, but I did notice a big difference between Pogacar/Roglic and Vingegaard in the tehnical sections. It looked like Vingegaard was just sending it.

If first stage is anything to go on, Vingegaard will have a hard time dropping Ayuso... We know Ayuso can climb and with power numbers like that, he must be in an all time peak.
It's going too be interesting, depends on there individual condition. Ayuso is not normally in the same league as Jonas, as seen in races they have done together. Ayuso has been more of a spectator.

Edit: come to think about it, have the done anything other than the Vuelta?
