I'd be surprised if Soler isn't among them up the road, if that plan materializes. . . . Invoke the 2011 ghost of Andy Schleck (for Landa). That was a great stage (finishing on Galibier).Koronin said:Blanco said:I'm expecting Movistar to dictate the stage. They will want chaos, to break Alaphilippe as soon as possible, and to create opportunity for Landa to strike hard. A lot will depend on Valverde, and how he feels because of altitude. If he's ok i think he will try to escape on Izoard trying to put the pressure on others and preparing Landa's attack on Galibier. They will need to be very strong, but I think they will try.
It's very possible. For this to work I would expect to see them try to get 3-4 riders up in the break as well.
