He doens't like the nervously pushing & fighting for places, he said. He likes more space to race...
I guess it is time for him to focus on something instead of a guy who can sprint well, ride the cobbles well & ride the hills well.Michielveedeebee said:Well Van Avermaet himself said to Sporza last year he'd start focussing on the ardennes. He claims he's suited better for those hills than for the cobbles.

Is Ricco welcome or not?theyoungest said:Vacansoleil has been guaranteed participation in the Tour de France, according to Dutch newspaper AD. Manager Daan Luijkx says he's almost sure they'll send a team of attackers/stage hunters, because "that's what we're best at".
Don't know, but Luijkx said that if Ricco rides the Tour, it will be to win stages, because he thinks riding for GC will be impossible after having done the Ardennes classics + the Giro. It doesn't sound very likely that he'll be there.craig1985 said:Is Ricco welcome or not?
Hmm, that would almost take two GTs to pull off. Everyone with 90 race days or over rode at least 2 GTs last year other than Voigt at 104 days with 1 GT and Hoogerland with 94 days and no GTs. At any rate he will be riding most stage races on the program.auscyclefan94 said:Travis Meyer said on a recent interview with Cycling Central that he will be doing close to 100 race days. Bit much for a 21 year old?
Holy ****?! The guy was two years older then me. RIP and all that.DAOTEC said:
