I can’t wait for this race to begin, the parcours looks very good. Hope there will be lots of attacking. The Netherlands are all focused on Mathieu van der Poel. As you can imagine, he is the top favourite and in red hot form. The problem is however, everyone knows he is very fast. So...

Stage 12 picks Vuelta

Stage 12 picks Vuelta

Today I really thought I had the winning pick in Aranburu, or my second pick Cavagna. Aranburu was again to eager to display his strength too early and Cavagna just didn’t have the climbing legs. Tomorrow a stage with a very nice finish, a wall of 2.6km with 10.6% avg gradient. Perfect to launch a...

Stage 9 Vuelta picks

Stage 9 Vuelta picks

This stage will be one for the top climbers. A short queen stage with a finish above 2000 metres. > 2000 metres is Valverde’s kryptonite, so I’m not backing him. Although it’s barely above 2000 metres I think Movistar can and will play the Quintana card tomorrow.. and who will follow the Weeman from Colombia....

Stage 7 Vuelta picks

Stage 7 Vuelta picks

Vuelta Stage 2 picks

Vuelta Stage 2 picks

Well today’s TTT was very strange. There was a water leakage that resulted in some big crashes and other factors teams losing time. Like cars from other teams standing still on the parcours, while DQS was going for stage win. In the end EF finished 4th. I guess you could say DQS would’ve won. Anyway...

Stage 1: EF to finish top3

Stage 1: EF to finish top3

I think there is good value in betting on EF to finish top3 of stage 1 of the Vuelta. EF has improved alot of their TT capabilities, as individual riders but also as a team (even won a TTT this year). Their roster is very strong, lots of strong timetrialists. Jumbo’s roster is also strong,...
