Ok Dumo if you want Olympic gold this is your chance. Don't ride 2 GT in front.

The ones who are left behind. Everyone will try to be in front, and I think every big team will bring at least two workhorses, just in case.

For the Spanish team, Valverde is the only accomplished and proven one day racer.

Both the French and Spanish teams at last year's Worlds found a way to co-exist and work together.

However, I'd expect anyone trying to win will be on/near the front anyway.

But the rest of the team are able to get over a hill higher than 500 metres. :D

If I'm not wrong you're talking about a guy who won at least 25 MTF in his career, right?

S Yates says he wants Giro this year, Olympics next year and then Tour in 2021. If anyone was to target the Olympics outright at the start of the year in 2020 what would be best GT to do, Giro?

Vuelta if any I'd say. I don't think you can easily use a GT for one-day-race prep.

Yes.

It's also a bit silly, a bit funny and a bit awesome that he says that if he was his own rival, he would be shitting himself with the prospect of having to race against him in this Giro.

Edit: I see you posted this in the other thread, but oh well...

S.yates has shown no capacity to successfully ride one day races - GB will have better options.
