Vuelta Stage 5: Royal City ITT Preview


Sorry, should've mentioned it's a travel day today. Big stage manana... who do you like? This is about the only chance the power chronomen have to make their mark on this race, before getting crushed in the mountains. Should be fun.

UPDATE: Some info: it's an out-and-back 42km circuit. Board flat. Famous for winds, but even they aren't expected to matter (5-10mph is what forecasters say when they don't think there'll be much wind). Then there are the crashes -- see the live thread, but initial fave Stef Schumacher is apparently hurting, and Klodi lost time mysteriously. Smart pick is Levi Leipheimer, perhaps. I'll take a stab: Cunego!!
