I think Bobridge for this one
Yeah, you'd think he'd be a great prologue rider, based on his track background.

The thing is, he isn't. Gretsch for the repeat. Or maybe Janse van Rensburg?
 
Coppel will go well and then of course Engoulvent (stage).
Valverde will be hard to dethrone, but a couple of the top teams are sending what appears to be double leadership:

Astana: Brajkovic+ Fuglsang
Lotto: JVBD + Jelle
Eus: Anton + Nieve
Blanco: Gesink + Mollema

Looks like we have a potential GC race in the making.

Movistar's combination of Piti & Quintana may be the most dangerous here I would say. Valverde won this race last year as well so he should be "extra" motivated.

König for Netapp - Endura will be competitive, if he isn't preparing for Giro. I think he could even do podium if he's in form.
 
Spanish tv showing this?

Something for addicts sine the disappointment of no live Oman coverage.

Valverde has had much racing in build up to this but he normally doesnt need it.
 
i think teledeporte will have 30 minutes highlights every evening


i have no idea how much the food posioning from tour med affected rebellin, otherwise he would my pick for a podium place

valverde and/or quintana for first place.

Barta could do well in prologue, he's above average time trialist. But maybe it's too short for him.

Nope.

Classification with approx 20 riders in

1. Maxim Belkov (Katusha) 6:56
2. Martijn Keizer (Vacansoleil) 6:56
3. Bart de Clercq (Lotto-Belisol) 6:56
4. Ion Izagirre (Euskaltel-Euskadi) 6:58
5. Jack Bobridge (Blanco) 7:00

:eek:
I think Bobridge finished almost dead last in the Giro prologue last year, so this is an improvement. The guy is just not a great prologue rider, but keeps being named as one.

edit: lol, Quintana with the same time as Bobridge.
 
Current top 10

1. Simon Spilak (Katusha) 6:48
2. Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) 6:50
3. Maxim Belkov (Katusha) 6:56
4. Martijn Keizer (Vacansoleil) 6:56
5. Bart de Clercq (Lotto-Belisol) 6:56
6. Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) 6:58
7. Ion Izagirre (Euskaltel-Euskadi) 6:58
8. J. Iván Gutiérrez (Movistar Team) 6:59
9. Anthony Delaplace (Sojasun) 6:59
10. Vladimir Gusev (Katusha) 6:59

Gesink 7.29 but guess he has an excuse if it started raining.
Sounds more like crash/mechanical problems to me. There are only 4 corners, and his time is more than 20 seconds slower than last year.(with way worse form)
