Almeria - Almeria 7.3 km Timetrial
A new acquaintance for most of us, an old race that hasn't gotten much TV time but this year we'll have live video. This is a classic warmup race, often the first stop on the road for the GT hopefuls. A course that offers climbing but not too much for early February. Vuelta a Andalucía is the actual name of the race but Ruta del Sol is of course a way cooler name.
Sunshine of the day:
Francisco Vasquez Garcia Edvald Boasson Hagen
It's his year you know. A 7 km prologue should be a breeze for him.
