Vuelta 2015 Favourites stage 1: Orica GreenEdge in a league of their own

Vuelta favourites Orica GreenEdgeThe Vuelta opens with a shirt team time trial on a flat parcours with hardly any bends. The Orica GreenEdge boys will be pleased... (Slideshow route/profile)

Last year the TTT in the Vuelta was won by Movistar, but the track in Puerto Banus is more like the one in the recent Giro. Flat and straight roads. Orica won that race and is topfavourite in Spain also.

Normally Sky and BMC would have been close rivals, but since recorded times will only be counted for the team classification and not for the individual GC it looks like Orica GreenEdge will be the only team to give it all they have got.
