    The most interesting stage is the 32 km ITT with the uphill at the end. And that says it all.
    Stage 1: Sagan
    Stage 2: group of 20 - maybe Sagan as well
    Stage 3: sprint, Haussler gets 2nd... :D
    Stage 4: same as stage 3
    Stage 5: same as stage 3
    Stage 6: finally, something different. But without Leipheimer, Zabriskie etc. (they're still suspended in May, aren't they?), I have no idea who'll win.
    Stage 7: same as stage 2
    Stage 8: same as stage 3

    Will Peter Sagan win his first GT at only 23 years of age? ;)

    Pretty much how I see it, especially the TT :D

    Stage 2 is actually quite hard, it's like a 600m climb so think Green Mountain or PdBF. Could be more selective than Diablo which isn't horribly steep.

  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    And wouldn't that be a great story as well. "The new generation" and all that...

    Nevertheless, I'd like to see Tejay do well.

    CYCLING - CRITERIUM DAUPHINÉLE COURSE OF THE 65TH EDITION UNVEILED EXCLUSIVELY
    From the unpublished program


    GT- http://www.ledauphine.com/sport/2013/03/11/de-l-inedit-au-programme

    Quote
    A month before the official presentation, the Dauphine Libere will reveal the contours of the 2013 edition of the event which will be held alpine 2 to 9 June. And reserve including two summit finishes unpublished Valmorel and Super Dévoluy.
    A big departure from Switzerland, no prologue, the novel summit finishes, 65 e Criterium du Dauphiné some surprises in June. If the veil on this 2013 edition will be officially lifted on 15 April in Lyon in the salons of the Hotel area, we are able to give you an outline of a course that balances expensive overall respect to the Alpine race. A departure for Switzerland

    For the first time, the great departure will be given abroad, Champéry in Switzerland and exactly which widens the circle after three steps Helvetian arrived in Geneva. After Geneva, about twenty miles from Eagle and the UCI headquarters, the small Valais village (1300 inhabitants) will launch the race by a line stage, given the necessarily hilly topography.

    The next day, Monday, June 3, riders will leave just the other side of the border, Chatel, where the 2012 edition had reached its climax. As a first step to Oyonnax favorable to sprinters before landing via Ambérieu, Tarare (Rhone), 24 hours later. Finishers will then store their ambitions since Wednesday, June 5, halfway, Dombes, probably around the Bird Park will host the traditional chrono but a distance which should not exceed 30 kilometers, as the next Tour de France, where part of the timed stages has been reduced. Final Risoul

    The last four days, the race will logically with height starting from Thursday Grésy-sux-Aix, the first summit finish, totally new, side Valmorel.

    The next day, the squad will leave for La Léchère rally Grenoble, without knowing yet clear whether the route will immediately terrible the Col de la Madeleine, will visit passes Chartreuse or Belledonne balconies. "It will be hard," warns Gilles Maignan, director of the race, which is logically discrete on checkpoints not to be missed.

    Saturday 8, will start at Pont-de-Claix Super Devoluy destination, the resort of Hautes-Alpes, too, has never hosted the Criterium. It seems certain that this great mountain stage should pass through the coast of Laffrey and the Col du Noyer (first climbed by the side champsaurin) lands a feat Luis Ocana in the Tour de France 1971 direction Orcières-Merlette.

    As we already indicated, the final step is drawn between Sisteron and Risoul that, three years after the victory of Nicolas Vogondy, thus receives the final finish. But far from being trivial variant, the riders will climbed Col de Vars before tumbling on Guillestre laces and the first leading to the station Queyras.

    Endpoint of a vintage that plume unpublished cities and historical a priori meets the requirement of Champions three weeks before the start of the long-awaited 100 th Tour de France

    The official presentation of the 65 th edition of the Criterium du Dauphiné will be held Monday, April 15 at the headquarters of the Regional Council in Lyon. The next day, you will find in our newspaper map and main difficulties of the course of the race alpine.

    CONTADOR, EVANS AND ... Froome?
    This may well be the future of the Tour podium that align the June 2 start of Champéry. Alberto Contador (2 e in 2010) and Cadel Evans (4 times second) have checked the Criterium du Dauphine in their program and it seems that the British Chris Froome, 4 th last year before finishing two e 's Tour, will all while teammate Bradley Wiggins, double defending champion, is dead. French side, the participation of Voeckler, Rolland, Péraud, Chavanel and Coppel is acquired.

    23 teams are involved, 19 and 4 World Tour formations already invited Europcar, Cofidis, Bretagne-Dried and Endura-Team NetApp.

    IL LOMBARDIA 2013  - “SORMANO WALL” CONFIRMED AS THE GHISALLO - AND VILLA VERGANO IN THE FINAL

    Quote
    Sunday, October 6th: Bergamo – Lecco. - Mtn Qhubeka invited after the Vini Fantini setback

    Milan, June 20, 2013 – After the huge success of last year’s Il Lombardia, which saw the solo victory of the Spanish Joaquin Rodriguez, it’s been announced that the 2013 edition will start from Bergamo and the finish – as in the previous edition – on the Isonzo Lungolario of Lecco.
     
    The Race Route
    The riders will start the 2013 Il Lombardia in Bergamo and, after some early hills, will see them tackle the Valcava climb (9.6km long at 9% and at an altitude of 1336m). A technical descent then takes the race to the Bergamasca Plain and to the Brianza hills. The Muro di Sormano begins just after Maglio; although it is only 2km long it is vicious, thanks to its 15% average gradient, narrowness, and 25-30% grade hairpins that make up the middle of the climb.
    After Colma, the road descends to the lakeshore and Regatola di Bellagio, before heading to the Ghisallo. The roads climbs to 754m with an average gradient of 14%. The descent to Asso is extremely fast and will take the race to Oggiono and the final climb to the route’s sting in the tail: the 15% gradient Villa Vergano. After summiting, the riders will then descend towards Lecco for the finish on the Isonzo lakeshore.
     
    Participants
    The 107th edition of the Il Lombardia takes place on Sunday 6th October with many of the best cycling champions from 25 teams lining up on the startline.
    In substituion of Vini Fantini – Selle Italia (who gave up the invitation) RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport race organizers called the South African team MTN - Qhubeka, winner of this year's Milan–San Remo with Gerald Ciolek.
     
    In total, the 25 teams of 8 riders racing the 2013 Il Lombardia are:
     
    ·       AG2R LA MONDIALE (FRA)
    ·       ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI - VENEZUELA (ITA)
    ·       ASTANA PRO TEAM (KAZ)

    ·       TEAM NETAPP – ENDURA (GER)
    ·       TEAM SAXO-TINKOFF (DEN)
    ·       VACANSOLEIL-DCM PRO CYCLING TEAM (NED)

The event will take place between August 8 and August 11.

    The participating teams are the following ones:

    The field is a very balanced one with 5 Pro Teams, 7 Pro Continental teams and 8 Continental Teams. Famous Norwegian World Tour riders are expected to be at the start: national champion Thor Hushovd (BMC), which is the origin of the expansion of cycling the last decade in the country, rising sprinter Alexander Kristoff (Katusha), the second of the first stage of the Tour de France in Bastia and Lars-Petter Nordhaug (Belkin), Bauke Mollema’s perfect team-mate. The Dutchman is currently Chris Froome’s runner-up in the Grande Boucle before the Alpine stages.

    The Arctic Race of Norway aims at encouraging and developping Nordic talents, hence the commitment of having six Norwegian and one Swedish Continental Teams at the start. Amongsts those teams we find Joker-Merida, which trained most of the best current Norwegian riders and is ready to launch Vegard Breen, winner of the Ronde de l’Oise one month ago as well as Team Plussbank that counts with the presence of 19 years old prodigy Sondre Holst Enger, winner of the Nations Cup in Saguenay last june and third of the Glava Tour of Norway last May.

    The opportunity for these young riders to confront the riders of the Tour de France corresponds to the philosophy of the Arctic Race of Norway, which characteristic is to join forces with the  Norwegian Cycling Federation to launch the “Arctic Heroes of  Race“ (Morgendagens Helter Rittet) which is already the mark of the race main sponsor Statoil. Seven regional teams of a maximum of four girls and six boys aged 17 and 18 will compete on a 6 km circuit located in Harstad, just before the arrival of today champions.

    • 9 August: Svolvær-Svolvær
    • 10 August: Svolvær-Stokmarknes
    • 11 August: Sortland-Harstad

    Some quotes of parties involved:

    Yann Le Moënner, Amaury Sport Organisation Executive Director: “This race fits into A.S.O. developing plan which aims at finding unique events. Norway sublime landscapes and enthusiasm are a real guarantee to achieve our goal.”

    Christian Prudhomme, Director of the Tour de France: « We really feel a breath of fresh air when we consider this event that will take place in the Arctic Circle. It for sure will be a majestic destination for the riders and a real honor for them to inscribe their names on the winners’ list.”
