Only three races left for the Pro Tour guys, and none more consequential than this (sorry Lombardia). Saturday's U23 race convinced me that this will end in a bunch sprint, but the length of the race and repeated climbs will limit the size of the bunch. Does Zabel make the finale? Freire? Should Bennati have been given a spot? All close questions. In all likelihood the winner is going to need a huge turn of speed at the end; the Boogerds, Pozzatos, Sastres, Schumachers, Kirchens... all fine cyclists but not likely to have a say unless they can spring a solo attack. Which can't be ruled out; the last 2km aren't easy.
I guess what I'm saying is I have no clue. Cycling.TV will have live coverage, and I'll definitely be up for it. Join in the fun!
