With bonus seconds available at the finish, consistency will be key for overall victory. In Hushovd’s way will be his fellow Norwegian Alexander Kristoff, who is making his debut at the race. Kristoff should be able to handle the uphill finishes, and provides Norway with another real contender for the general classification – along with stage victories.
On the flatter stages, Marcel Kittel will be hard to beat. Like Kristoff, he will be racing for the first time since the Tour de France. NetApp-Endura comes to the race with a strong team, with sprinters Sam Bennett and Scott Thwaites. Bennett is likely to be the favoured of the two, but both could steal the thunder from the more experienced riders.
