LaFlorecita said:Did they say they'll skip it because it messes with their Tour prep? I think in Alberto's case it's just a case of can't be bothered.
Yeah Fuglsang and Roche did.
EDIt: Bak did the same.
Also a part of it that both Bak and Fuglsang dont have a team to help them and the chances of them winning af therefore slim. Also, regarding Bak, he wants to spend some time near his family before having to be away for 3 weeks during the Tour. And then the actual Tour prep (and the prep also includes focussing metally fully on the Tour and also relex mentally before 3 stressing weeks as Bak states). Btw as a "punishment" the national DS have stated that both Bak and Fuglsang wont be selected for the WC as a consequence.
Link reg Roche:
