Ruta Del Sol 2016 Cycling Preview
Ruta Del Sol 2016 was Spains season opener of stage racing this year it comes 2nd to Valencia. While some stars like Contador will race in Algarve, Valverde has stuck to this race but he may well be worth taking on. The time trial element seems to have pushed the market in favour of Tejay here. Interesting for SKy that Kiriyenka is no 1 but also Poels is bang on form. In end the top 3 of the market just seemed priced too right for me too bother opposing.
De La Parte has been talked up and the 80/1 is worth a small go of a punt to be this years Valls as some have called it. I have memories of Mollema being able to turn up this early in the season and it looks like he has Giro on the mind and is keen to impress Trek to get their full backing of his team behind him. Last but not least Kiriyenka can kill a time trial and Poel is not that selfish that Kiriyenka won’t be given a fair cut.
