Vuelta 2015 Favourites stage 6: GC guys or escapees
Stage 6 is a feast of hills while the arrival is atop a 20 kilometres climb. What is it going to be? Are the GC guys going to raise hell this early, or is it up to a bunch of escapees? (Slideshow route/profile)
Who is strongest, Froome, Quintana, or Van Garderen? And do they think the time is right for a GC battle? The long closing climb is tailor made Sky’s scorched earth tactics…
If it will be up to escapees, expect riders such as Bart De Clercq, Alessandro De Marchi, Joe Dombrowski, Sylvain Chavanel, Tom Dumoulin and Maciej Bodnar on the barricades.
*** Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana, Bart De Clercq
** Alessandro De Marchi, Tejay van Garderen, Maciej Bodnar
* Joe Dombrowski, Sylvain Chavanel, Tom Dumoulin
