So, Froome won another GT time trial, taking half a minute on Kelderman, a minute on Nibali, and way more than that on anyone else.


In short: This Vuelta is Froome's to lose.
That said, so was last year's Vuelta after two weeks, and then Formigal happened. Never say never.

Another Froomigal is unlikely to happen. Last year Sky went to the Vuelta with a cobbled together team of tired and out of form riders while this year a flat/medium mountains domestique like Puccio can hold climbers like MAL and a resurgent Contador close for several kilometres on the last climb of a multi-mountain stage at the end of the second week...
Not to mention Moscon (who disrespected the Italian jersey today to be fresh for tomorrow), Poels who is peaking in the 3rd week and just did the TT of his life and the always dependable King in the North.
I don't think Nibali is content, he's just feeling powerless but I still expect him to try and break Sky along with Contador.
