As stage 1 is uphill, a pure sprinter like Cav may struggle. . . so I reckon Degenkolb looked good, but hes not riding. So EBH or Gerrans may do well on an uphill finish . . . but is it too soon to put in an effort, and will sky be saving themselves for the TTT?
Maybe I should pack the team with quickstep, europcar and vacansoleil riders as htey will be going for stage wins rather than the GC. . . . I'm getting a headache. . .
