Florecita was crying in the past because she believed AC could have won 8-9 TdF without Clembuterol saga and was afraid he won't be recognized in the Merckx, Hinault, Indurain etc elite group but at the same time she noticed Armstrong wasn't in that group despite his 7 Tours (few less right now)
So she started to appreciate a good number of wins of Giro and Vuelta in his palmares.
The classics add more depth yes, but he isn't dominant in that area, can do a top 10 easily but being 3rd, 7th or 9th didn't mean anything to him at this point so focus his peaks and forces on stage races/Grand Tours is the better option.
However if he has a chance to ride a classic like this year perfect but he was 9th
About one week stage races... He lacks T-A so it's his next goal
