[2.Pro] Vuelta a San Juan
« on: January 08, 2020, 15:18 »
Vuelta a San Juan 26th January - 2nd February



Etapa 1: San Juan - San Juan (163.5 km)



Etapa 2: Pocito - Pocito (168.7 km)



Etapa 3: Ullum - Dique Punta Negra TT (15.2 km)



This is the finale of the regular stage won in previous years by Villalobos* and Alaphilippe.

Etapa 4: San José de Jáchal - Valle Fértil / Villa San Agustín (185.8 km)



Etapa 5: San Martin - Alto Colorado (169.5 km)



Etapa 6: Circuito San Juan Villicúm - Circuito San Juan Villicúm (155 km)



Etapa 7: San Juan - San Juan (141.3 km)



The first race of the new ProSeries. It's basically .HC with bells on. Some of the things that are different are the required number of pro teams. If you want your race to remain at this level you'll need to satisfy the conditions below:



The 2019 figures presumably were the criteria for .HC

One other change (it might have some relevance for this race) is that any competing rider for a CT team or national selection "must have submitted accurate and up-to-date whereabouts information to an anti-doping organisation for a minimum period of 6 weeks and have been subject to testing in accordance with the athlete biological passport programme as implemented by the UCI."

SEP San Juan were complaining about the "vampires" late last year.

    It is a bit surprising that they accepted the invitation after last year's shenanigans. They were very childish at best in the aftermath of the incident with Keisse and I half expected Lefevre to continue in that vein by going elsewhere this year, but common sense has prevailed.

    Richeze is getting on a bit now (37 in two months time), but he was still getting GT stage podiums last year, so I don't think we'll see a massive drop off in his lead-out prowess just yet.

    Indeed, desperate times call for desperate measures. Neither this selection nor the TDU one inspires too much confidence I have to say. All the big guns must be riding Mallorca.

    In other line-up news, Mamykin could be lining up for the Russian national team. He had a few races last year, but without any performances to write home about.

    Sagan turns 30 on the same day as the opening stage. He may be yesterday's man, but the organizers still believe in him and have a Sagan Fondo on the rest day ($50-200 entrance fee).

    There are three rather obvious picks for the sprint stages, but as for the GC? I don't have a scooby.

    Usually pretty accurate. I reckon if you followed Emil Axelgaard's previews and bet on it, you'd beat the bookies handsomely over the course of a year.

    Viewing Options

    Eurosport Player has the complete race from start to finish. If you just have it on your TV it will be the last 60-90 minutes of each stage.

    GCN should be an option if you live in an area where no broadcaster has the viewing rights.

    The local broadcast will be here. Not sure if geo-restricted or not, I'm pretty sure it wasn't last year.

     Another year, another Quick Step story.

    This time they have complained about time loses incurred by the riders involved in the big crash, just outside the 3 km boundary.
    Apparently the crash was caused by a spectator stepping out for a better view.

    The jury will make a decision around midday CET time.

    Not as controversial as the California decision, but it sets a precedent for future incidents.

    A bit of a surprise winner. Gaviria was held up by the crash and couldn't quite get back to the front, Hodeg went too early (?) and I dunno what was up with Sagan - he hardly got out of the saddle.



    There will be more discussions about the almost inevitable crash (27 teams on big, wide, straight roads with no kerb). A lot of names would have lost time without the above decision.
