Please. Froome is already dangerous enough with his riding style, give him stillnoct and he probably flattens the peloton involuntarily

A calendar with plenty of 300-400 meters uphill sprints. :D

They started posting some videos to their Youtube channel, akin to the backstage pass of Michelton Scott, I quite like them but they seem to need more views.

It's good that they are animating the race a bit instead of the usual duo of Sky versus Movistar.

Not just animating the race. They have won two sprint stages with Groenewegen and they have two riders in the top 10. For me, next to Sky and Quick-step the best team so far this year in the Tour... And of course those two teams have much bigger budget than LottoNL Jumbo.

Now they’ve signed van Aert, they seem to be building up quite the versatile roster.
