Otley - Doncaster 136.5 km
Another case of "ignore the profile,see what happens" day. Today with the women's one-day Tour de Yorkshire early in the day as added bonus. Decent startlist, tough parcourse and a big prize pot for the women but best of all: live coverage. The women race the same 136 km route and it should be brilliant.
Flat caps of the day: Nicholas Roche & Rosella Ratto
Another day of wild gambling, aka pulling names out of the flat cap. Ratto is due a return to the big results and I wonder hot Armitstead is for this? It's home field for her but formwise she is in a building period. Roche is just "random Sky dude who could do well"
