They go all in with Vlasov while keeping flexibility for chasing breaks and stage wins.

Bora's line-up only lacks an elite mountain domestique, but Kämna, Grossschartner, Konrad and Schachmann should be enough to at least guarantee a couple of riders staying with Aleks in each stage when the peloton is heavily reduced.
 
Bora with Vlasov, Schachmann, Kämna, Großschartner, Konrad, Politt, Haller and Van Poppel

no Bennett
We talked about it during the TDS. I'm glad that they took the strongest riders. Nevertheless I'm surprised that they really didn't select Bennett.
Schachmann quickly recoverd from COVID. In a german podcast a german reporter said that he talked to Zemke. Zemke said that Vlasov didn't really have symptoms. Haller was a good again at the austian championships and Schachmann seems to be negativ after 5 day, too.

There will be large enough Jumbo /Ineos contingents when the select groups form so he can just hook onto those. But that doesn’t help if he has a mechanical or other mishap and needs assistance to get back to the front.

Have you guys seen the route for this race? To me it makes absolute sense that QuickStep bring some guys for the tough terrain like Honoré and Bagioli and don't go all-in on a sprint train. French jersey or not. I don't buy that it's a question of nationality.
