This is also what pisses me off the most. CLEARLY lesser riders are being rated above Valverde prerace by lots of people - remember, Rolf Sørensen (who seems obsessed with Valverde and if he is dropping all the time) didnt even have him in the top-10.. In the Vuelta, in this field.What if he leads after two weeks?
To me it's pure nonsense to admit that Urán could be a candidate, when Valverde is not, while he is clearly much, much stronger.
But fair enough, let's just drop it.
