Prediction as follows: Nederlands, Colombia, Italy; Espana and Rui Costa as wild cards. In particular, wout poels in the caddy, estaban chavez steak knives, nibali fired. Piti wheel sucks a bit too much and watches the winning break sail away on the flats. Rui Costa in the final spot.
Other riders to watch: Dumoulin, Mollema, Bardet, Cummings, and Rigo
