Tinkov from http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/tinkov-ill-come-back-and-win-the-tour-de-france-when-froome-has-gone/SKSemtex said:It looks like we can have a nice GC fight this Vuelta, I really want Conti to win and beat Froome here. As much I want Sagan to race Canadian races this year I would prefer him to help Conti in Vuelta instead.
The question is whether he could he be any help for Conti skipping his resting days and doing Olympic MTBrace.
Being the team owner or DS would you instist Sagan to race Vuelta and help Conti or allow him to ride Can. races?
Is winning the UCI team ranking more that having GT winner and scalp of Froome?
"Peter's value to the team is so great that he did not have to ask permission to ride the Olympics and the mountain bike race. It means he will miss the Vuelta but that does not really matter. With Alberto Contador we have other targets in Spain. Sagan will ride in Canada and even there he could win. Two in a row at the World Championships? That would certainly be very nice."
