Starts today! In Eire, or course.
With no Nibali, Froome or Contador racing, Quintana has to start as favourite. Love to see Purito and Evans put in a decent challenge and who knows, maybe Dan Martin could have a shot at the podium? If Uran is ever going to emerge as a genuine GC threat in the Grand Tours, you'd think he'd have to start showing it in this one.
Distinct lack of Brits this year, but Ben Swift is in good form and should have a good chance at bagging a stage win or two.
