    Only two teams confirmed so far.

    #androni

    https://diarioelnacionalista.com/deportes/androni-giocattoli-sidermec-oficializa-equipo-para-vuelta-al-tachira-2020/

    Luca Pacioni
    Nicola Venchiarutti
    Daniel Muñoz
    Johnatan Restrepo
    Kevin Rivera
    Jefferson Cepeda

    Big favourites any other time of the year, but no guarantees at the start of January.

    #colombiatda (?)

    https://www.esciclismo.com/actualidad/carretera/54325.html?

    Darwin Atapuma
    Hernán Aguirre
    Omar Mendoza
    Brayan Hernández
    Didier Merchán
    William Muñoz

    Jose Rujano won't be riding this year. He's down in Argentina to ride San Juan later in the month, which itself doesn't overlap with Tachira, but part of the deal that got them (the national team) that invite is that they also ride the Giro del Sol, which does. Also missing due to that reason should be Jose Alarcon, Roniel Campos, Anderson Paredes and Clever Martinez.

    Loteria will be entering just the three teams....

    The main one is undoubtedly Lotería del Táchira – Concafé as that will have defending champion Jimmy Briceño with support from Ronald González, Nelson Camargo, Jonathan Camargo, Daniel Abreu and Luis Mora.

    Bramon, the usual build-up race to Tachira, was meant to have already been underway, but due to fuel shortages has been postponed to the middle of this week. Will try to post stage winners etc if it goes ahead.

    The other main local contenders are Deportivo. All five runners are strong.

    Rivera interview.

    Quote
    To Tachira we will try to win stages with the sprinter, and test if we can win a stage, but it is without pressure because we are starting the season, the biggest expectation is to pick up the pace

    He says he's feeling good though.

    Quote
    I feel so much better than the previous year, I feel more mature, I feel good, I have grown up, we will see how things are going to give us

    The list of competing foreign teams is shrinking.

    Ecuador, Cundinamarca, JB Ropa and a Brazilian team have all withdrawn and.....

    .......now we can add Colombia Tierra de Atletas to that list.

    I find it hard to believe that these teams all cancelled only 3-4 days before the start of the race. More likely, the organiser just never told the world before now. :(

    I don't know about the others for certain (however Ecuador was still getting mentioned in most articles the past couple of days), but for Colombia Tierra de Atletas it must have been a last minute thing. This was six hours before the above tweet:

    yeah, the social media stuff will probably not be done by the race organisers though, so sometimes it may take a moment for an information to reach the other.

    But they sent in a team last week, so it probably was a late call indeed

    According to Edwin Matamoros, these will be the competing teams:

    https://twitter.com/MatamorosEdwin/status/1215486037889290241

    https://twitter.com/MatamorosEdwin/status/1215483864740696065

    Julian Cardona (ex-EF and Androni) rides for the last of those Colombian outfits. He could be a shout for the TT, but generally the level of these teams isn't so high.

    He rides! Shame they couldn't race together for his debut, but there's always next year.

    What seems to be gaining more twitter coverage is what happened before the stage started. Local politician Freddy Bernal turned out to be an unpopular choice to get them on their way.

    Normal service is resumed.



    Well, normal in that Androni won, but this circuit doesn't usually produce GC action. Salinas, Campos and Rivera with a healthy headstart before the real climbing begins tomorrow. Loteria are conspicuous by their absence in that top-15.

    The UCI haven't yet got him officially down as a Matrix Powertag rider, but he's already channelling his inner Aular.

    Maybe Rivera won't be winning the Giro just yet. ;)

    Him and Salinas are now both over two minutes down on the leading trio (Two Deportivo and one Loteria). Cepeda the best placed Androni at +1m27

    TT tomorrow.

    Whisper it, but Rujano Jr is doing pretty well for someone straight out of juniors. So far his placings are 17th, 28th, 24th, 17th, 16th and 16th which leaves him in 18th overall at +7m37. Pretty consistent and bodes well for the future.

    They're onto the climbs in the queen stage. You can try and follow it via the official twitter, but updates haven't been great through the week.

    Getting a bit boring all these Androni wins, but it seems likely that the main prize will elude them. Campos and Ruiz hung in well enough today to still have a fair cushion going into the final circuit stage.

    If you are wondering why there is no Cepeda in the top-ten on the stage, it's because he crashed out. Broken wrist they think.
