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).
Look forward to seeing him there, should be good.

Will need a helicopter and a couple of cancelled MTFs to win a GT though.

Agree, he should focus on becoming the best hilly classics rider of his Generation rather than waste his talent on trying to win an unachievable goal.

Looking forward to Moreno's debut of the season tomorrow in Lugano.
Even though he just posted this on Twitter:

What's going on with the weather in Europe in the last few years. Getting sick and tired of the snow and cold.

Moreno is back.
He did an impressive job for Sagan in the last kms of today's GP Camaiore, bringing back 3 or 4 attacks on his own.

Very promising start of the season for him.

well impressive is a little too much considering his qualities...he brought back a nasty attack from Nibbles and kept the pace high until Sagan's sprint.

Anyway really promising for the classics!

Everything about Moreno is impressive to me

I heard the interview before the race. Low profile as usual. Even during the race he was invisible until the last kms, but always there.

Only thing I'm concerned about: Sagan too strong means he won't have many races to ride for himself?

He'll probably have his chances in LBL and FW, I don't think sagan is targeting them.

Very impressive work from Moreno today though, I think he will definitely be up there in the classics contending.
