Vanendert's chances are growing, because he seems to be the only one who takes this race seriously. Now that we finally have a trustworthy start list I'll give my stars:

****Pogacar, Kwiatkowski
***Hirschi, Dumoulin
**Landa, Porte, Woods, Vanendert
*Wellens, Jungels, Konrad, Kreuziger, G. Izagirre, D. Martin
Interesting - and weird - that Alaphilippe decides to pass on this. It's 5 minutes of bikeracing to add another classic to your palmares. However, with Alaphilippe out, the field is very open this year. Woods, Hirschi, Kwiatkowski and Pogacar are my favorites here.
I get it. He burned a lot of matches at the Tour, raced a hard World's a week later, and has LBL this weekend. I'm a little disappointed he won't be there with the jersey on but it opens up the race, and I totally get him needing a mid-week break. Hopefully he's enjoyed some partying the last couple of nights and will be well rested to show the jersey in LBL. I get it from his POV.

for sure, even one week after the Worlds it's usually tough to be back in action- let alone on Wednesday. Will be interesting to see how guys like Hirschi, Woods or Dumoulin figure, but it wouldn't be too surprising to see them off pace

No idea. You know who will tell you that it has been known all along and that he only wants to ride a farewell procession for the Spanish fans. In truth, it makes no sense. Hopefully it's because he wants to be fresh for LBL.
I'd say there's more than one who'd make a dignifying excuse.

Movistar's lineup's a man short which makes me think it was a late withdrawal.
Don't know what's been their preliminary lineup, though.
