Sure, but he has still done better than in FW. And he also won the U23 race two years in a row. He needs a bit of luck of course, but he could finish between 6 and 15 on Sunday.He loves LBL so much that he has a 67% DNF rate in this race.
I guess their main plan was to ride for Higuita, but that was not possible in the end. Howes was also very unlucky in the break.Yes, they need to figure something out! IMO, JV needs some other brains to help him with the building process, and then the racing process.
Today: Was Howes long range their only plan? I like the move, but what if it doesn't make it (it didn't), then what/who? Carr? Valgren? Higuita? If Valgren hates the race he better not be part of the plan. The team mentality isn't correct IMO so they aren't going to do any better until they figure this out.
That's quite true.I don't think they have the riders to compete for the Classics and one day races.
Hmm, he was great in both UAE and Tirreno (until the hypothermia). With a bit of luck, he could have been on the podium of both races. He has the tools to at least win a stage in the Tour, and I'd guess that he can follow up on Martinez's win in Dauphiné.Higuita can't find his pre-lock down level. His recovery seems gone. Both in TA and Itzulia he completely collapsed in the last hard stage of the race.
