Astana with the usual killer team in these early season spanish races.
I'm very curious about Jack Haig's performance. He's been steadily improving for the past 2 years, can he finally win a stage race?
Haig should be disappointed if he doesn't match his performance from Valenciana, especially as the parcours is more suitable to his characterics - ITT is a small worry as he is only average at this discipline - This should set him up well for P/N in which he'll face the heavy hitters.
What, did Bahrain confuse this race with the Tour de France?

Originally, their team consisted of Landa, Teuns, Colbrelli, Caruso, Cortina, Mohoric, Bilbao.

Seven of their eight biggest stars.

Padun in instead of an ill Cortina, though.
Some racing kilometers in the legs before a route like this could be useful but doesn't have to mean too much.
If only the lineups on the peninsula this week were more evenly split would've been ideal.
