Almost the team I predicted. I'd rather have Oss over Puccio, but they both have big engines and can work if required.
No need for a captain, we must put riders in every move and let Trentin/Colbrelli sit on Sagan/GVA's wheel in case they go for it in the finale. Viviani won't be protected, he'll sprint if he can survive till the finish and still have the legs (which I doubt).

Very slim chance of winning the race, but that's the best possible team.

After reading volume 5 of My Struggle, I refuse to believe that there are ever sunny days in Bergen.


I'm currently on volume 4, so I would'nt know.. (but I do)

Aye, at number 4 here too.

Well, you can look forward to a lot of rain and an unfortunate incident in Bjork's toilet. Seriously, though, they are all fantastic books. Book five is probably my least favorite of the five I have read. (I have not yet read the last volume.)

Well, the thing is that we don't really like the sun. Would rather showcase our usual drenching September (in evidence all through last week) and make them all races for the hardman.

Omitting Marczyński for Poland is kind of weird as well.
Wij steunen hem, tenzij hij niet genoeg fietst.

Don't understand that either. People making selection are saying that he doesn't handle being a domestique very well, and causes problems and they are all in for Kwiatkowski.
Still, I would give him free role, make him tack on to the attacks in the final stages of the race. It's not like Poland is going to be setting the pace with just 6 riders and Marczynski and Majka not among them. Just not strong enough.
Thank god for Paterski. He will be there in the end to support Kwiato for sure. Bodnar should last for a long time as well

Vermeulen in for Bookwalter.

I do not understand Veneberg. Van Poppels last race was Plouay DNF and doesn't seem in top shape...

Slagter was 3rd and 6th in Montreal / Quebec. He could have also gone for Kelderman or Oomen even.

Yeah. Bad choice- Slagter would do well on this route.

Are you joking right? No way he can survive the hell that Belgium will make there. I think he won't be with Sagan already in round 7 or 8.
14 in Gent-Wevelgem!


I think he'll get dropped with two laps to go.

kolar and baska are decent riders, so peter will have some help in the first laps. But no doubt, he will be isolated by the end. Shame Peter velits retired, he would have been big help, he was a very good rider.

My biggest fear for Sagan in this race is that a small gap opens up on Salman Hill and he has others look to him to close it down. He needs a biggish group.

Yes.

That or Puccio being in frustratingly good form in the Vuelta, and Oss, while being strong, wasn't as prominent. I mean, I way prefer Oss but it's an understandable decision.
