Weather: There will be sunny weather with clear sky in the first stage of La Vuelta 2013 in Galicia.

Winds: They will be rather strong Northerly Northeasterly, between 25 and 50 km/h in this first team time trial stage.Wind will blow as a tail wind

For me its the usual here. OPQS go off favourites and are the World Champs in this event. However their may be value in rest of the market. I really like the Astana line up its full of talent and their pretty good in this event anyway. Ladbrokes also offer a tempting 8/1 on Radioshack led by Cancellera who has really been peaking for this he once nearly won a ttt by riding 90% of it at the front the man is a monster.

For outside bet look no further than Orica Greenedge at 20/1, they won in the Giro in this event and they are very well drilled at this.
