Breschel will be in four figures now he's back with Riis. Beware.

Oh ye of little faith. Breschel will be back to his 'almost living up to his promise' disappointments rather than his last two years of 'completely not living up to any standard'.

McCarthy was definitely on the bubble for me, he's a good talent, but in the end I couldn't fit his cost into my last few picks.

He isn't a TT'er. He's good good kick, very punchy, good acceleration hence he did well in that prologue. He's got a good sprint on him as well. He'll score few points but will not score anywhere close to Durbridge last season as he will not feature in long-ish / medium TT's.

McCarthy can also climb ok, but it is too inconsistent. Also he has a good sprint but last year at the U23 WC RR he attacked on the Cauberg.

Actually he attcked before the Cauberg, quite stupid move IMO, since he was one of the quicker...

I thought McCarthy will be more of a classics guy and he wouldn't be a good enough TT to win short stage races.

Classics guys usually don't give you good profit in their 1st or 2nd years.
i learnt that with Tosh Van Der Sande and Johan Le Bon last year.

That's the main reason I didn't select him.

Not all stage races have a 40k TT. Take Circuit de la Sarthe this year the TT is 6.8kms and the other stages are pancake flat. You do not think he could feature in this TT in a weak field and gain 50 GC points easily ? And it's just one example, I'm sure there are more.
