It doesn't help that the Giro route doesn't suit either Aru or Martin - Hope UAE doesn't fall into the trap of making Martin ride the Vuelta - he was nearly as bad as Porte.Salvarani said:Going Giro might not be a bad thing, if only just to race it. Home race, supporters etc.yaco said:Should just be riding the Vuelta - See if he get his form back in one week stage races.
With the ITTs he wont be among the top favorites. He can fly under the radar a bit. If he shows up as Aru from 3-4 years ago, he will still have a pretty good chance for a high placing on the GC. Maybe even 1 or 2 stage victories. (best case scenario)
If Gaviria and Martin is on for Tour. He dont really have a choice than to try, and probably racing the Vuelta too.
