Wait, Vlasov is also riding this one? I'd have thought that they'd have him rest after a rather packed spring campaign.Haig is not starting, but he is *** in cold weather anyhow. He had a huge off day in Romandie last year as well.
I think it will be Bora (Vlasov/Higuita) vs. Caruso vs. Thomas vs. Woods. Vs. O’Connor.
Higuita has a history of having off days in bad weather. He's one of the few Colombian cyclists from the lowlands and hates cold and rainy weather.
The final MTT should suit guys like Sobrero and Tiberi.
