La Grand Boucle starts today with La Grand Depart from Brussels. Eurosport is on, and I’ve got a Belgian bun(s) for company. Any of our Benelux friends watching live? For those catching up later: good to see GvA in the break already
What do we think is going to go down? While I’d love to see Thomas win again, I’d be very happy for Bernal if he becomes de facto leader later on. He’s definitely in form, but perhaps might lack some of the racing nous/experience? That said, with such a good squad and with team radio, you’d think he has the support he needs.
Because of their amazing kit, I want to see a lot of EF. While Uran’s been out of action for a while he got third place recently and the team behind looks as though it might have a couple of stage wins.
Movistar have their ‘trident’ again, but which will they focus on? Quintana doesn’t seem to impose himself enough and is happy to shadow others. I don’t think that makes him very popular.
Heh. Really going out on a limb there…
