The Vuelta team will also be open when no Quintana is there, both him and Carapaz could be there. But just thinking loud, why not just the Giro? Its the GT he is most reliable for.

Don't pay attention to what he said. He is completely off. He has no clue about what is going on. He keeps saying that he is motivated and yet shows up completely over weight. Then he wants to do the Tour de France. LOL. Is this guy drunk? And then he continues by saying to keep doing what he is doing. Really? To continue doing nothing??? I have seen some professionals in my life like that. These types of people just don't get it. They have an imaginary world in their head. Completely detached from reality. He is a goner IMHO.

Unzue cannot wait to get rid of him fast enough!

In general. It's a very female body shape - both fat women and fit women could have a bottom and thighs similar to Bananito.

Regardless of everything, I actually still believe he will have a good spring campaign after only finishing 5 minutes down yesterday. Betancur's season is basically April/May, so he gotta perform soon, we all know what happens afterwards

Quite frankly amazing how much talent he has.. just makes it that much more regrettable he doesn't use it. Maybe this will be the year, believe.

Juraj Sagan

And guys like Sieberg and Boy Van Poppel, for someone like him that was actually a somewhat decent performance in a cobbled one day race, at least he tried.

I agree, it actually wasn't a bad ride at all. I was just setting the record straight. (Although I know that gospina knew it was Juraj and was just having a little joke).

They must think that heavy riders are more adept at cobbled races

Betancur's job was to set an example today, and it worked. The entire Movistar Development Team finished the race.
