All I know is the Giro and the Vuelta team will be built around climbers and the TDF around Ewan.


Power a last minute replacement? Jeez, he rode as if he had targeted it. Great to finally see a bit of his talent...

It’s easy to forget, but Power had an even better U23 palmares than Haig when he was a full year younger - and not by a small amount either. At full health he’s a serious talent, better than Haig and Howson.


I know, but many a young talent has been curtailed by injury or some other thing - so it really was great to see him ride so well in Strade. First time he's really shown his class at WT level. I assumed SD was a target for him, and that maybe he had a bit of a license to do something.....but if he was subbed in, that logic doesn't fly. Makes his result all the more impressive ~

Power was a last minute replacement for Juul-Jensen who couldn't get to PN the nice day - Power has looked good in the first three stages of Catalunya, though I'd have preferred him to ride Coppi Bartali - It's been pleasing to see all the MS riders in the firing line at the end of stages in Catalunya.

Injury Update: Adam Yates
Thu 22 Mar 2018
Scans following Adam Yates' heavy crash in the final kilimeter of stage three at the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya have revealed the 25-year-old has sustained a fractured pelvis.


After preliminary scans yesterday evening, Yates had a subsequent consultation with an Orthopedic Specialist today in Girona which confirmed the fracture was stable.

Given the nature of the injury Mitchelton-SCOTT head doctor Robbart van Linschoten remains optomistic.

"Adam has a fracture of his pelvis as a result of his crash but the fracture is stable and won't require surgery," Dr. van Linschoten said.

"He will take 10 days of complete rest before we conduct another x-ray to confirm the healing process. At this point, pending results and pain levels, Adam can begin to ride again on the home trainer."
