Its a tough parcours and looks like definitely a race for the climbers and attacking riders so I think the fans will get a good show and a nice weeks racing. We have a strong team and also tough rivals so it will be entertaining. It’s been a quick turnaround from Sanremo but it’s gone smooth and we’ll be ready to get things going on Monday.”
