It's only a bit longer than a pursuit today so gone for a few ex-track guys...
Kwiatkowski
Martin
Hepburn
Gaudin
Dennis
Sergent
Kittel
Kern
Hivert

Purist isn't actually all that different with tejay, nizzolo, albasini and roux in for the prologue guys. Not very gc-heavy...

After all the usual claptrap about budgets this and difficulty that. The fact that everyone has got quite a fair few different riders (I believe everyone thinks people having different riders is a good thing) all with a good shout of doing well shows the organisers got it right (as usual) and it should be an exciting race. I'm sure this will in no way stop people complaining in the future.

And that one person complains about everything so it's best just to ignore them.

Don't know how reliable this is but saw this on twitter!
'Tejay Van Garderen has crashed in the Romandie Prologue..!'
That'll be 10 points in the bag for both teams  4
