So which race is more interesting to you and why?

.

Race A is the Giro del Trentino, Race B, the Tour of Romandie.

Trentino : four stages; first one is a 16 km ITT. Satage 2 is a mountaintop finish, stage three is hilly, stage foru ends on a hilltop.

Romandie: five stages; Stage one is a 3 km ITT, stage three is a 15 km TTT! Stage 4 looks to be the Queen stage.

Romandie starts a week from yesterday. It's on CTV and no doubt other places. We'll be talking more about that race next week.

Trentino starts tomorrow; I have yet to find video for it. If you find a feed, either put it here or start a thread tomorrow!
