and btw i don't know why they don't go for team classification at la vuelta , they are second at the moment behind astana , but they have the potential to win the team classification , so why don't go for it and leave it to astana?

So i think that Dve Brailsford has to be cannibal , why leave team gc to Astana ? They are clearly better , they have a chance to be in the history, no team won a monument , two grand tours and both the team gc in the same year , this would put team sky in a League of ther own forever

in the end what i want to say is that team sky could not sacrifice their talent in order to help Froome for two reasons
1) Froome don't need too much assistence
2) Their talents are waisted wasted and it's a pity Moscon could have won Yesterday tt if not for Froome

Really, just edit your own post if you want to add something, instead of quadruple posting.

Try to use breaks or consider writing less, because else it might come across as spamming and I am confident that's not your intention given your enthusiasm on the boards in the past days. :)

As for team sky it will be interesting to see what will be thei team at next year letour , because it will ever be their main focus , with 8 guys , for sure they will bring kwiatowski and also Moscon , poels , don't know Thomas , but in end yes , castroviejo for TTT , delacruz for the climbs he started already in this vuelta and a rouler like stannard or rowe

i will be interested in team sky classic spring season , if they sign van baarle , with moscon , poels , kwiatowski and stannard they have a chance to win more than just a monument , but winning one is a very difficult achievement

this is your opinion , but have to say that Dave B slams movistar in 2015 saying that they care more of team classification that bring quintana in yellow in Paris

I reckon Froome's Vuelta team was stronger that his Tour team, at least in the mountains.

Yes that's probably right. Landa was the standout in the Tour while in the Vuelta, Sky was more consistent in the mountains.

What is unfair is that Froome will have this team next year for the Tour:

Thomas Poels Henao Kwiatkowski Castroviejo Moscon Stannard

Unstoppable!
