 I managed to catch some of the prologue after the worlds and have to say it was a bit more interesting than most.
The weather was just as it normally is, the course even managed to get out of town for a couple of kms, offering a glimpse of countryside, where the vines were starting to take on those beautiful autumn colours.
 There were a couple of uphill sections, the final one being quite significant, both in terms of length and gradient, ending on the compulsory Portuguese pave. This is where most of the problems occurred. A number of riders experience mechanicals and one even managed to ride off course, following the service vehicle detour.
 Most noticeable misjudgement of the day went to GC favourite, Joni Brandao, who overran a downhill corner, ending up on another street.
Remarkably, he still managed to finish 6th on the day.
Oh and of course Groundhog Day, with W52's old, old boy taking the win and the first leader's jersey.
