they will do the vuelta and possibly the tour or giro. giro is doubtful though because I think they want to have them help froome and not wiggins. but now who knows?

Moreno.moser " wants to fly high" in tirreno msr and liege.

He says he will also do a gt but doesn't know which 1.

Looking at what he says -"the giro is our race,.the tour is global and the vuelta is.good worlds prep." id guess that the vuelta is the most likely option and the tour is least likely.

If I were him I'd first try and win a decent race before talking about prep races.

I don't speak Spanish, but Hitch says he sees Vuelta as a prep race for the worlds. If I were him I'd see the Vuelta as an opportunity to actually win a good race.

He'll race to win during the spring (I think he'll be especially good in TA, might as well win the trident), and then he said he'll race a GT. He's not trying to win any, so he just says that every GT has its own pros - Giro is italian, the Tour is the biggest and the Vuelta would be good for preparing the WC. In any case, it's not like he's stupid enough to think he'll be of any threat ftw in a GT.

I mean stages in GT, not the overall GC. Seems like a perfectly normal goal to me for someone of his capabilities. I wouldn't worry too much about the WC yet if I were him.
