Movistar replacing Quintana with....
Guillaume Martin leaving Wanty Gobert to go to Cofidis
You must be heartbroken
Is that a step or down?
Lead out man for Vivianni ?
Robbie Hatch intimated that Roglic may be on the move as they've named Kruisjwijk as GC man for the Vuelta.
I find that surprising but his support in the Giro was less than stellar
I hope he has more ambition than that.
The sprinters seem to be atb the top for shorter time these days since Cav and Greipel's glory days.
Viviani, Gaviria, Kittel have all shown vulnerability
The margins are so tight and the pressure to win ? It's less than half a wheel for most of the sprints lately.
I am rather sad.
WGG are top of the European tour rankings, but with both Meurisse and Martin perhaps have too many stars (a bit like Ineos)
Yes I felt for him in the Giro,he was a marked man from the off.
Why don't they do that joint leader thing that pays off for so many teams.....lol
It helps if you've got a back up team!!!
Nibali to Trek. I've always thought of Trek as the team to go to if you're a GT rider past your best. I do hope that's not the case for Nibali.
Any news on the Vuelta? Heard Tom de M isn't riding?
Well, he is past his best, surely. And has been for a few years IMHO.
An animator like Valverde in his dotage!
Pretty sure he's out,probally for the rest of the year I think.Shame as he's had a shoot year.Mind you so has Sunweb really.Theres talk he's going to Lotto who have some great talent,maybe a good move for him as a team ?
Well, I didn't like to say. I do wonder about Trek's recruitment strategy. They've got some decent younger riders but Mollema, Porte and now Nibali are all past their best. Top ten riders I guess, so I suppose it depends on strategy.
