So Gesink confirmed to go for the Giro/Tour combo. Perhaps Hesjedal finally opened his eyes last season
still to see whether he'll be in shape at the Giro or will tackle it just as training ride.

A major improvement from the last few years...So Ten Dam, Kruijswijk and Kelderman to lead La Vuelta?

Gesink always goes full gas. And Blanco need results ASAP.

Looks like Blanco will be throwing something at the Giro.

Gesink also won't ride the classics. His scheme will roughly look like this: Ruta del Sol - Paris-Nice - rest - training camp - Romandie - Giro.

Pity he ain't going to Tour de San Luis. It would have been a spectacular kick off.

Now just pray and hope he doesn't run into any serious injury for the first time since 2009

It's good to now that you already have an excuse prepared when Gesink fails in May.

Why not Tour of Oman for Gesink?

Also i would assume Mollema would lead at the Vuelta, unless if they do not consider him to be a GT contender.

They will be good next year: Vanmarcke and Boom for the cobbles, Mollema and Slagter for Ardennes and Bos and Renshaw for sprints and a sound plan for the GC riders.
