Wonder if there's a chance he'll be considered for the Tour considering just how well he is riding. I find it unlikely though.


Nah they have enough climbers there.

Froome-Bernal-Thomas-Poels-Kwiatkowsi-Moscon-Castroviejo-Rowe (van Baarle)

I'm sure they'll send him to Vuelta where their leaders look to be De la Cruz and Sergio Henao. So I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a lot of chances to score his own results there

I think they'll give Poels the Vuelta leadership. G-Hart will ride his way into the team just as Elissonde did at the Giro. Maybe Froome favourite Knees instead of van Baarle. No Bernal

If they didn't change the plans Poels is supposed to ride the Tour, he stated multiple time at the beginning of the season that this year he was scheduled to ride both GTs with Froome.

I actually feel sad for some guys at Team Sky. They have such a great pool of riders that some totally deserving guys wouldnt even ride the race.
They should be allowed like 2 teams.

LOL, can you imagine a SKY train 16 riders long in the Tour if SKY was allowed 2 teams. This forum would explode! :lol: :lol:

They get paid big bucks to be 10th best on that team. They chose it themselves.

LoL, excellent idea, that should be implemented! Of course not only in Sky case but also MS? Astana? BMC? Even Movi?
What is a point of riding with such teams as Cofidis, Direct Energie, Fortuneo, Wanty? They are only responsible for a crowd at breakes.

Did someome tell Geraint he is riding the E3 Harelbeke a couple days in a row? This spring classics legend is really killing it with such much talent. Apart from the fact they all look like they have mad cow disease, British ppl are so superior

Complaining about AG2R actually racing? Bunch of sissies. You got a 90 second head start with the TTT, you rich ****.

Don't be pedantic. They already have the strongest team here, and that team strength (paid with big £) pays extra dividend in TTTs. So instead of being perhaps slightly modest towards a team that has 1/3rd of Sky's budget, they start complaining for them actually grabbing an opportunity. A mix of arrogance and entitlement that I find pretty disgusting.

I'd say Van Baarle and Castroviejo have secured their spots for the Tour during this race. I'm assuming Kwiatkowski and Moscon too, although they dropped pretty quickly yesterday.

I don't speak Spanish, but this is what I make of it:
... good feelings and a lot of motivation for the Tour de France, where he will be part of the '8' of the British team. "The preparation ... for the Tour, ... for the mountains, ... 31-year-old.
