In other words; could the team lose one, but not the other?


I think there is an argument for saying that the Schleck brothers derailed their careers by riding together. Of course they would never admit that but their tactics were all over the place often affected by being unwilling to ride away from each other. If there were tandem races well it might have worked. There used to be tandem races on the track years ago which were pretty weird to watch !


I think there is a difference between riding against each other (on different teams) and one riding for the other (on the same team)
The Schleck brothers' main issue seemed to be that they were more concerned about getting on the podium together, than letting one sacrifice himself in order to help the other win.


Yes the sacrifice part was a tough one for them..........


Yeah but Andy was still young. His career ended just about the time he was going to enter his peak with that crash. We’ll never know what would’ve happened had he not been injured.

Museeuw recovered from a much serious injury and came back winning Roubaix. Armstrong recovered from cancer, etc
Andy took a credible excuse to quit pro cycling, nothing bad if you ask me

Trentin will return from his broken vertebra at Adriatica Ionica.
He will likely miss national championship and the Tour but if he has recovered well he could be in good shape for Poland and Eneco or, at least, for the Vuelta.

Trentin is definitely riding the Vuelta - He could snag a one or two stages.

He said that he still doesn't know where he'll ride after Adriatica Ionica because the injury messed up his program and he needs to find out at what point is his form and how he feels in race condition.

Nice start from Lucas Hamilton at the Dauphine, he's been one of the better non-sky climbing domestiques so far.

Absolutely correct - But the aim is for him to ride the Vuelta - I'm assuming he must be riding the Adriatico Ionica for an Italian team which is a good starting point.

Hamilton has done real well and has been around the final in three of the four mountain stages - It's likely he may usurp Power as the leader in the Tour of Utah.

Does anyone know the composition of the 2018 tour squad for MS? I gather that A. Yates is in for sure with Ewan, Mezgec and Kluge. Not sure who is going to give mountain support to Yates, maybe Howson, Verona, Power or Hamilton. Impey seems like a starter and is in good form. Durbridge and Meyer seem to be underdone but they would be great for the TTT. Edmondson or Hepburn could be the power riders. Have a feel that they aren't going to take either of the oldies in Albasini or Hayman. If Hayman doesn 't go, who would they make the Captain on the road?

Think i posted a possible TDF Squad a few months ago. Certainties are Yates, Howson, Ewan, Mezgec, Impey and Bauer. The remaining riders from Hepburn, Kluge, Hepburn and Hayman. They will have a good squad for the sprints and the TTT.
