Open Thread: The Last Phase of the Vuelta

So I posted a couple mags' thoughts on the Bolso as to what's gonna happen this week. My sense is that it's going to come down to Valverde and Kashechkin, with Vino not that well suited to the next few days and eyeing the worlds anyway, and Gomez Marchante and Sastre both having less in the tank. At worst (for Valverde), I can see the latter two hanging on, but with no chance to move up in the final ITT. As for Kash v. the Green Bullet... has anything happened in the first two weeks that suggest Valverde can or will be beaten? I simply don't see it... but that's why they race the races.

Y tu?
