"Alexey is in a good condition now. I think it might be a bit difficult for Fuglsang to keep up with him. In any case, they will ride as two captains. I tend to think that Alexey has better chances. He knows Medeo and every turn there. It will be easier for him to contest for a win there. But it is possible that somebody from another team might happen to be stronger. We shall see what we shall see. But there is a bonus of knowledge of this mountain for Alexey – he knows where to rest and where to accelerate", - Alexander Vinokurov told about his team's tactics at the fifth jubilee Tour of Almaty-2017.

Based on the fancy video maps on the awesome race website, I tried to map the two stages of this race.

but stage 2 (with the Pyrenees-like finish) fits exactly

looks like there are no turns though?! :P

Vino also talks about the possibility of the Giro d'Italia starting in Kazakhstan in that interview, by the way :o
