Etapa 7: San Juan - San Juan (141.3 km)

It is worth noting that there is a rest day in between stages 4 and 5.

The only real difference from last year's route is stage 6 which starts and ends at the new motor circuit. GC should still come down to Alto Colorado and the TT.

Eurosport will have 90 minutes live coverage of each stage. The local coverage on ESPN will have a two hour show, but that could just be talking heads for the first 30 minutes.

The defending champ should be back this year. ;)

SEP San Juan also have hopes of their suspension being overturned and thus being able to compete at their home race, but would the organizers still invite them after Najar's bust? A discussion for a different sub-forum.

The Giro del Sol finished the other day. There are rumours usually every year of it returning to the UCI level, but for the time being it remains an amateur event for the local teams. Here are the results:

Naranjo and Dani Diaz who had been 1st and 2nd in GC crashed (together) during the final stage. The former made it back to contest the sprint (and win!), but was diagnosed later with a fractured scapula. No San Juan for him...

 Eurosport to televise the race live.
Rumour has it that they have also picked up the TDU.
Giving both races take place when the Aussie tennis is in full swing, I expect the player to be only option available.

Sagan hops across the South Pacific. We'll have to see how him and Bennett divvy up the stages.

Petr Vakoc
Julian Alaphilippe
Remco Evenepoel
Alvaro Hodeg
Iljo Keisse
Maximiliano Richeze

All eyes on Evenepoel, but Richeze (still had some discomfort in his knee a week ago) and Hodeg should be good for a stage win or two.
