I think Chris Horner and Levi Leipheimer are favorites, along with Evans(if he's in it) and Schleck. The mountain TT will make it interesting

Leipheimer has to go into this as favourite.

Horner is not in, but Evans is. Here is the full roster: https://www.usapro...Roster.pdf

I think Henao, Evans and Baez will finish on podium with Henao as the winner ... :-)

Such a bad route, Leipheimer FTW.

They should have put the ITT up Pikes Peak. Pfft

Baez and Henoa above Leipheimer?

Henao for sure ...and Baez, yes, I predict so. The mountain timetrial will do this job ... ;-)

Truly a horrible route! I thought they would atleast put in a Mountain Top Finish, but I guess they will have atleast one thing to improve on, for next year.

I haven't seen the startlist yet, but it sounds like Henao and Levi are the favourites. Personally I think Henao can take it, since the TT isn't flat, he wouldn't have to make up more than about 20-30 seconds I'd say on the Aspen stage to beat Levi.

The mountains aren't as exiting as the organizers said they would be. American race organizers. Rolling Eyes

Frandy is there, as is Cuddles.

Start list is good for this one.

Don't get fooled by the profile, it isn't a MTT. It averages less than 3% over 16km if my numbers are correct.

Yes, over the hole 16km the average is ~3% because of the more or less flat first half. But at the second 8 km there are ~5% average ...

Isn┬┤t the highest point of the TT at 2800m? That makes it harder than the gradients indicate.

It needs to be over 10% to be real hard, and exciting.

No it doesn't. But it seldom goes over 5%, so it suits the likes of Leipheimer better than the likes of Henao, imo.
