So it's that climb. This could get interesting.   ;)

...

Now I'm curious as to what sort of bike setup the riders will be going with.

I think the best riders will use TT bikes. The course looks like a shorter version of the Bergen worlds course and  Dumoulin, Froome and Roglic all used TT bikes in Bergen if I remember correctly (somewhere I have pictures but they mysteriously disappeared off my hard disk).

If I remember correctly, Nelson Oliveira was the first rider to finish with a standard road bike (bike swap), ending in 4th - and that is probably his best ITT ever. 

PS: Just noticed that Bob Jungels came in almost 2 minutes behind Dumoulin that day. The course isn't as long as in Bergen, so that could mean a minute here if the strength of both riders remain propotionally the same.
