The more likely scenario is he never is getting i proper shape still I reckon. Surely theres a DNF today, but thats to be expectedKoronin said:This is more the more likely scenario.ice&fire said:

As expected... hopefully he got some good racing miles in his legs before jumoing off. The conditions were extra crazy today!Kazistuta said:
No idea what their plan for him is. However they've already said they are planning on sending Soler to Paris-Roubiax for who knows what reason. Truthfully I'm not sure anyone has any clue what Movistar is doing this year.Popchu said:Betancur was still in the peloton in the last ten kilometers, doing some work at the front of the peloton and finished in 77th place. Good to have some kilometers in the legs. I think he's slightly better than last year at this point, but that's hard to compare ofcourse.
I'm curious to see what his racing calendar will be. I hope they won't send him for the third time in a row to Belgium, although he's on the provisional startlist for Wevelgem. Movistar is riding for the first time in recent years the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali, that's definitely a better alternative for Betancur.
His off season weight gain and subsequent struggles to finish races became a meme in this tiny corner of the internetDr. Watson said:

Some years ago, to be fair. Then he became a mystery:Dr. Watson said:
When he finished 5th at the Giro, 3rd at Flèche, and 4th at Liège at 23 in his first year on the WT.Dr. Watson said:
Yeah, I noticed too - thats really a perfect schedule. Hope he can do well in Pais Vasco, but he won't have any freedom. He should have decent opportunities to make a big result in Indurain, altho its still maybe one week too early.Popchu said:He had a good time trial - in line with his previous ITT performances - to conclude a rather anonymous but good week. And more good news: he's scheduled to ride GP Miguel Indurain and Pais Vasco, so it looks like he'll have a proper build-up to the Giro.
