Also Valverde will have Soler for help. Not sure who Pogacar will have for support.
Valverde will love that climb. Those are the type of climbs he great at. With today's results at Mallorca we know Valverde's form is typical for this time of year.
It's a mano a mano climb. The strongest rider will certainly win it regardless of the team. A hard team pace is not even good for Valverde.

It looks like something in between Mas de la Costa and Los Machucos. Honestly, Im going for Pogačar. It's a bit too long for Bala to have an edge.

Don't think these climbs are that mano a mano cause they just wait as long as possible anyway. Also no need to not go as late as possible because there's no ITT. 10 km ITT would make this race a bit better imo.
I think Poels could also challenge Bala and Pogi here, he was good in this race in the past and the climb should suite him.

Will also be interesting to see how Martin goes with Israel and I'm keeping an eye on Haig and Tao Geoghean Hart whom I both expect to make another step forward this year.
Two races and snooker on the schedule this week.
How to follow everything while the cable operator is in the war with the channels' provider?

Anyway, I was unaware the both, Valencia and Arab tour, will be broadcast.
