Hard to see if Valverde is on the same team and still with ambitions. Opportunities can pop up, but El Bala is pretty ruthless when it comes to big targets.
Here is your asnwer http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/valv...-extend-career
Piti wants podium,so Nairo will be co-leader at most unless Piti crash ofc.

Cancellara also said he doesn't want to be like Boonen because he rides the cobbled classics every year. So I wouldn't really value his opinion all that much.

Anyway on-topic:

Gilbert: Tour Down Under (confirmed, before it was just rumours)
Boonen: Tour de San Luis

He already struck gold once (literally). Not gonna happen. Certainly given the Sagans, Degenkolbs and what have you who will then be approaching the peak of their power.

Love this thread, thanks.

Does anyone know what OPQS outfit is for next year and more specifically how Cav will look in it. Somehow i do not think it will work as he will be like the little munchkin surrounded by tall teammates.
