Not Moser, but Sagan(was a discussion about his program here).

He only mentions Milan-San Remo, Ronde and AGR. Makes no mention of any other classic, but that doesn't mean he will not ride it of course. But also means it isn't confirmed he will ride everything.

Moreno talking about his program.
Will start with Lugano and Camaiore, then Strade Bianche and T/A.
He will ride Milano Sanremo and the Ardennes, not the cobbled classics. Tour de France is gonna be his first GT ever, preceded by Dauphine and Suisse.

He's not riding the Giro because he's not sure he can do well this year, and not winning a stage would be a huge failure in his mind. At the Tour, on the other hand, there's gonna be less pressure on him. He also hinted that he might try to win a GT in the future (which I personally don't think is a good idea, but whatever).

Dauphine AND Suisse I think is quite difficult should be only one of the two...
T/A is maybe too hard for him now....

Yeah sorry I read an "e" where there was an "o".
Sounded strange to me as well


If he really wants to become a GT rider he needs to start testing himself in one week races.

Very true. He is much more of a puncheur. I wouldn't mind him going the way of Gilbert. He could be very successful being a puncheur. Just look at his performance in the Tour of Poland. He closed a gap on Henao that should have been impossible to close on a short steep uphill. Gilbertesque if you ask me.

Well I can actually see him go the Valverde/Rodriguez way, why not...he's so young he could develop into an incredibile stage racer, and a good Ardennes rider all the same.

Well I suppose. Both of these riders usually have killer finishes uphill, which is exactly what Moser is good at.

I am quite hopeful that he can get a stage at the TDF. The Ardennes will be good for him to gain experience there and who knows he could go really well.

Moser could go well at GT's in the future just like we say with Sagan. In fact his climbing seems better and he also seems ok at the Time Trials.

I was browsing through Moreno's Twitter and found this:
