    It's the latest fracky placky tacky-tick for marginal gains: name a rider as GC leader then have a different rider go for GC. It's worked a treat at the Tour twice!

    Yes, I thought I'd read that too but they'll decide on the road maybe.
    Which is kind of what mjr said...:smile:

    It's the new thing to do "we will let the road decide"

    I suppose if you fire enough bullets, one will hit the target eventually!
    I don't think Carapaz was even one of the possibles at the start of the race.
    Will Quintana and Valverde and Soler be riding committed in his support, I wonder?
    I doubt they'll make it that simple

    You're right and not even on the long list of 10 that I saw. All in for Tao?
    Much as I like TGH I can't help thinking that reduces the list of GC contenders a bit. Who's left!

    Not a chance Quintana will be riding for anyone but Quintana.

    "The team's two co-leaders will be able to look towards Kenny Elissonde, Sebastián Henao and Vasil Kiryienka, a stage winner at the 2013 edition of the race, for help in the mountains."
    Hmmm!
