Decent preview here from Andrew Hood:

Analysis: No five-star favorites means Vuelta could be even more unpredictable

Quote
The lack of marquee names could be a boon for this year’s Vuelta. The Spanish race is now set to deliver the sparks and fireworks that have consistently made the it the season’s best barn-burner.

Quote
“No one comes to the Vuelta just to pedal the bike,” [race director Javier] Guillén said last week. “All the top-level riders only think about winning when they are racing. I’m not worried about the intensity they bring, I am only worried about if they come or not.”

Quote
Last year saw British riders sweep all three grand tours. So far, Latin Americans have won the first two in 2019. Take your pick — Urán, Carapaz, Quintana, López or Chaves — all have options to keep that streak going.
