If he gets if some kind of shape he could be ready for La Vuelta.

It looks like the leash is short at Movistar.
Let's see what he can do in Dauphiné or Tour de Suisse? No Nairo or Valverde in those races.
But likely Izaguirre, Intxausti...

To the bolded, are we saying this everytime he fails selection to a race? ''Maybe next time?''. The guy is a lost cause. He's not in shape for the Giro and he won't be in shape for any race until the season ends. How come fans don't understand.
for someone who wants to seem like he doesn't care you respond in this topic an awful lot :rolleyes:

Why do you presume "he fails selection to a race"? Maybe it's just his schedule? I'm 100% sure he will be in shape for some races this year.

Beñat? :rolleyes: For sure Ion will be leader in one of those two, the other should be wide open.

Is riding Romandie. This will show his rate of progression.
If he don't start showing some progression soon he's going to be training to ride the Lake Chelan Century Challenge with wackjobs like me... :D
He has progressed decently so far, he did a good ITT under the circumstances. There is a MTF in Castilla on Sunday so I think he should wait to judge him.
