Purito needs to understand that it's better for him if he rides the Giro/Vuelta. Hope he makes the right decision.
but he already made it.

Cyneteq thinks Purito will ride the tour next year even though he said he was going to ride the giro, and everybody is trying to convince him he will do the Giro.

Whether when purito said that he is going to ride the giro he was actually lying.

I mean it makes perfect sense doesn't it. Announce that you will ride the giro even though you are actually going to do the tour.

Genius.

Kerrison never even thought of it Forget marginal gains this is "major gains" tm right here.

Well if the Giro ends up having 10 mtfs like it might, then its an easy choice. Plus Purito is much better at the Italian climbs anyway. He needs the steepness to attack 1 km out
