Here you have the roadbook. Stage 4 is a real suffer fest. Wow...
Hmm... according to these official-ish (?) looking profiles there's no Picacho (instead they just do a 110km microstage to Bucaramanga)...
A shame. There's a lot of potential for fun, challenging routes in Colombia, but the low profile of the race means they can't do it too hard because then no one will bother to come...
...then again, 40km of flat ITT and the 80km Letras MTF are quite the challenge, especially for a 2.2 race, but other than that it's just sprints and and the microstages around Bucaramanga (the 237km Sogamoso stage has some climbing, but the final 80km are almost pan-flat anyway).
(inb4 the group explodes in a million pieces in the Sogamoso stage and I'm forced to eat my words :eek: )

Is this broadcasted somewhere?

Ps don't get the time travel joke
I remember the last kms of one of the past editions being broadcasted on RCN... or whas it the Clásico RCN? I don't remember.

Probably RCN or another Colombian channel, but no international broadcast.
 
Danny Osorio gets a rare chance to ride for himself now that Ortega moved to RTS. Not really a serious contender for the win but perhaps a stage win and TOP-10 on GC would be nice.

In the roadbook it is still there.

I really hope Cano or Duarte can break the Sevilla domination. Too bad Ortega isn't here to defend his title.

I still think Duarte will be too inconsistent to really challenge for the crown, but Cano for sure can do it. Especially on this year's route.

I'm rooting for Edward Beltran too. Does anyone know how he's riding this year/how he's looking ahead to this year's Vuelta?

The one thing Duarte has been this year is consistent. 2nd in GC Valle del Cauca, 2nd in GC Clásica Anapoima, 1st in GC Clásica Marinilla, 1st in GC Clásica de Girardot. He's been winning stages, time trials, prologue's. Don't forget he was already 4th last year as Sevilla's little helper.

Beltran has no noteworthy results this season.
 
Nelson Soto wins the 3rd stage in a sprint over Avila. Molano got a flat 4K to go.
Soto won the Pan-American RR over Molano. He also has scored some podiums in national races and track
It's been rumored that Molano would withdraw tomorrow to fly to Spain.
