Teams & Riders Everybody needs a little bit of Roglstomp in their lives

Why? I'd like to see Roglic winning the Tour. I don't see him doing that being up on his own against UAE and Jumbo/Soudal/Amazon/whatever.
The point is that there is an overall feeling that after a team winning 3 GTs the peloton is unbalanced. Had he not left Jumbo, Rogla in the Tour would be blocked and it would make things much more predictable. Jumbo are at loss here but it's a fair loss.
 
Yeah fans complain over JBV dominance and then we have this absolute legendary rider going away from them and all people do is....to complain. Roglic is balancing the peloton just by his own mindset. Get a grip people.
I'm a cycling fan and thinks this i excellent :cool: In the Vuelta I predicted he needed to go somewhere else, if he wanted another shot on the TDF and now we can looke forward to an interesting race. Vingegaard, Roglic, Evenepoel, Ayouso, Pogacar etc...... hopefully a lot of riders, who are willing to attack and crack the others. Fingers crossed, that he have signed with a team who can support him well.

Ineos makes more sense than Bora, but maybe they will back C. Rodriguez.

Bora is a little bit all over the place. I dont think Vlasov, Hindley, Higuita etc would be the best doms. Not really Martinez either. They are all on the same level. Nobody really stands out from that lot and they all good enough to win races. Uijtebroeks is/should be the future of that team. It is a bit crowded there now and even though Roglic is Roglic... I dont think it would be the best fit.

Roglic to Movistar, Jayco or Bahrain would make more sense for me than Bora. Then again Movistar has Mas and Jayco has S. Yates.

The more I think about it... Bahrain makes the most sense. Especially with Landa leaving. They have experienced support with Poels, Bilbao, Haig and Caruso. Buitrago there as well. Young Tiberi. Fellow countrymen Mohoric and Grovekar is there. To me they are the best fit and he would be undisputed leader.

I've never seen Bahrain ride as a team. They show up with 3-4 super doms and you never know which one of them will lead the team to 8th.

Roglic would be the obvious leader but I'm not sure if they have it in their DNA to really get organized into a race controlling force.
