For GC I see
Yates, Martinez, Pogacar, Buchmann, Almeida, Nibali, Poels, Haig, Higuita, Uran, Kuss, Almeida
I am also curious in which form Froome will start.

For the sprints the field is even more exclusive: Gaviria, Philipsen, Bauhaus, Viviani, Ackermann, Ewan, Bol, Moschetti, Nizzolo, Bennett, Greipel. So more or less everybody with a name..
 
March Hirschi was scheduled to ride this but now they've decided he'll ride the early classics. He is starting in his new UAE team colors.
Yes, but even without Hirschi Pogacar has a real good team here. Formolo and Majka can give Pogacar real good support. Because it´s their home tour, UAE really want to win this, I think.

Quite possibly the best sprint field we will see all year. Even the Tour rarely gets such a complete collection. Only Demare is missing, aside from the Dutch guys who obviously aren’t currently riding. It’s a pity that this battle royale will be dominated by the first race of the season form randomiser.

Yes, he did. I thought he could become an absolute superstar before last season but am a bit more hesitant currently.
Same here exactly. I'm not too sure that he'll be as good as he was hyped up to become before last season. He was pretty good at the beginning of last season, so perhaps UAE Tour will give us the first indications as to what to expect this season.
