Looks like 2009 was the last great course and we have to get used to these crappy routes, who are almost the same every year now. Still I have a bit of hopes that the stage to Manizales will be good.

I'm thinking Burgos BH, Orbea, Astana Continental, and Endura could probably be the Euro teams.

Well those were my picks. Not all of them are going to get invited. They're just my guesses.

the colombian fed always invite many teams but rarely do any foreign teams actually go. especially from europe. we had rock racing one time and they got humiliated. I remember hamilton and pevenage after the vuelta saying they couldn't believe how high the level was

That's what attracted me to the South American cycling scene. The fact that it's not covered as much as European cycling is even though there's some phenomenal talent down there.

But as you said before Ryo regarding the invitation of European teams to the race, the Euro teams don't have a reason to ride down there.

No. The U23 races were done within the regular Panamericanos in Argentina some weeks ago. This here is the Junior Pan-american Champs, so only U19 riders are in there.
The winner looks like he's 33. ;)

It's funny how the removal of your helmet and glasses can eliminate ones preconceived notions of someone.

Today's first stage of the Vuelta de la Juventud should not cause too much trouble on the riders:

It would be better if they started at the finish, and finished at the start.
