Sophistic said:What about the 2nd cat climb before the finish?There is a flat section in the middle but then its like 4k at ~5,5%, followed by a descend and just about 1 flat km before the final climb...so thats actually a good opportunity to attack for someone who doesnt have the explosiveness and anaerobic capacity to stay with guys like Gilbert and Rodriguez in an 800m affair.
python said:this finish has rodriguez's name written over it...it's a bit higher elevation and should be cooler fitting his light frame.
icefire said:Eisel withdraws. Wasn't he the last man in HTC train for Cav in this Vuelta?
Philippe Gilbert said:We will let a breakaway to leave with riders far away from the general. That might be the best way to keep the leader's jersey. I think the hardest thing will stand through the last port. It seems that the end will be tougher than yesterdays but I think I can still win.
hrotha said:Actually both the Giro and the Vuelta typically have a couple of stages like this in the first week. Some mountains, but not many, just enough to spice things up.
