Tour de San Luis

by TERatcliffe26   January 16, 2013  

So the season pretty much kicks off next week

The Tour de San Luis starts Monday, and has a pretty strong field and a rather decent route (basically 3 flat stages, 3 summit finishes and a TT in the middle of the race)

So as there is no race I thought we could just pop predictions down for the race

Here are mine

Overall result
1. Contador
2. Van Garderen
3. Nibali

Stage 1.
1. Cavendish

Stage 2.
1. Cavendish

Stage 3.
1. Rodriguez

Stage 4.
1. Van Garderen

Stage 5.
1. Betancurt

Stage 6.
1. Albasini

Stage 7.
1. Sagan

That's pretty cool! Is there any way we could get a Tour de San Luis race going? Smile

Id say no as we are getting to grips with everything and getting the TDU going.

Also half the teams/riders in the race are not your regular riders and teams

That is why i put a thread for a lighthearted prediction
