I think Kreuziger has a better chance at a top 5 than those other guys, but Roche and Majka would probably be ****ed of if they must ride as bottle carriers for AC :eek:
I agree he does have a better shot, but with the other two already announced it just seems very strange to go into a Tour with all three of the strongest potential domestiques with a hard Giro in their legs.

I would have expected the lineup to be:
Majka - Giro - Vuelta
Roche - Giro - Tour
Kreuziger Tour - Vuelta

Wow i wonder what he said last year :rolleyes:
Still holding a grudge are we? Maybe he should have said that he knows he has no chance and won't even bother to show up. Would that have made you happy, saved you from betting and losing the farm? :rolleyes:
He spoke in terms of his ambitions for the race, what he hoped to achieve, and how he felt leading up to the event. I'm sure he was way more disappointed with his results than you but you can't seem to have let it go and just can't move on.

Roche by his own admission is only going to the Giro so he can say 'the Giro was in Ireland and I was there'.

His goal is the Tour

With Roche's knee injury I have my doubts that he will be in good condition on time for the giro and may have to change his plans and focus on the tour/vuelta double again. If Rogers is missing then Majka has to be in the team for the Tour aswell as he showed in the Vuelta in helping Roche that he is an excellent and loyal helper.

sounds like Kreuziger is doing the giro?
I think it must be a wrong translation, every other interview with the team and Kreuziger says hes not riding the Giro, only Majka and Roche is, its also what Riis said in his last interview on danish Tv.

Bit odd if all of Roche, Majka and Kreuziger do the Giro. Even more so if they are all going to be riding it hard. I doubt if Contador would be overjoyed.
I don't think kreuziger will do giro. He said in Tinkoff video, his goal are two part. First is classic and romandie, and second is switzerland and TDF helping alberto.

Roche is betting that his form will better on the second GT (just like last year in vuelta). That's why he is hoping that he'll be actually better at TDF.

I would hope that majka and kreuziger will do Vuelta. Now that Quintana is penciled in for Vuelta, Bertie needs all the help he can get.

“This year I am going to stay in the warm climate a bit longer. The Tour of Oman will be a good warm-up stage race for starters. Then, I will be returning to the Strade Bianche and I will also show up at the Milan-San Remo. After two years I will also put an altitude training camp on my agenda instead of the Basque Tour,” Roman revealed.

He also targets the Belgian and Holland classics and he is definitely going to ride the Amstel Gold Race that he won last year. The first part of Roman´s race program will culminate in his participation in the Tour de Romandy. “We are expecting a baby in May so I want to be around my wife , of course. I would like to practice on my bike at home at that time,” said the proud father. “My race program for the second part of the season is not finished yet so I will reveal it later on,” he added.
