What do you think about Edwin Avila comming from the track?

Do you think he will have a decent road career? And do you think he can adapt to the road quickly and have a good first year?

avila will adapt the easiest as he was a very big rider in colombia on the road as a junior. also a very good climber. he gained a lot of weight in track of course but he's so small anyway. he and arango will do very well. arango is good itt and allround. basically a colombian that is great in itt, flat, steering is a major force in europe, as every colombian can climb, look at duque for instance, who was a bad climber in colombia

I don't know. their aspiration si doing the tour and other gt;s. they don't care for classics or any other races outside dauphinee in colombia. so I doubt they want to be wt as they also want to ride vuelta colombia and possibly other races.

Osorio out , I actually thought he was racing fit again, so this is a bummer.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Jarlinson Pantano. He had a strong showing at Strade Bianchi until he seemed to run out of gas and eventually finished an impressive 12th.
