Yeah that is true, RedheadDane. Sabatini for Viv and Richeze for Gav.

If both of the lead-out men are racing Milano-Sanremo, there will be two mini-trains for Quick Step. Mini-teams within the teams. Not to mention Gilbert and Alaphilippe's personal ambitions.

What about Gilbert?


They might go to the race both of them, or all three of them, but I'm sure Quickstep will have an overall plan of who they're going to ride for; they're not all going against each other.

I even doubt there is room for both lead-out men when you already have 4 leaders (Gav, Gil, Viv and Ala).

QS have a lot of strong workhorses who are also needed in the race.

Sabatini is not gonna survive MSR. I doubt he'll even start.

Hmm... maybe we should start either the Milan-Sanremo thread, or a Quickstep thread. Coz, erhm... we might have gone a bit off-topic here. :o

Gaviria will be the number one rider for Quick Step in MSR - Of course they have other cards to play.

It's Viviani's number one target this year.

Not sure what they are gonna do.

I don't think so. He's definitely in great form at present. But all things being equal, I'd have Cav, Demare and Gaviria = 2nd to Kittel. And then the next bracket behind them, including Viviani, would include a lot of names.
