Vuelta 2015 Favourites stage 7: Froome vs. Quintana

chris froomeOdds are on it will be up to the GC men in stage 7. After a hilly ride, the finish is in the Sierra Nevada after an irregular climb in almost 19 kilometres. The second part is toughest, while with 1 kilometer left the steepest section at 14% appears. Ample ammunition for spectacle racing! (Slideshow route/profile)

An arrival in the Sierra Nevada, so expect the GC guys to raise hell. Who’s boss?

As a matter of fact, after his strong performances in the first six stages leader Esteban Chaves is a serious overall contender as well. In fact, he may be one of the ‘fresh ones’. He didn’t compete the Tour de France and in the Giro d’Italia he finished 55th.

*** Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana
** Fabio Aru, Tejay van Garderen, Esteban Chaves
* Domenico Pozzovivo, Andrew Talansky, Mikel Landa
