In stage races the team will be prominent either chasing breaks for a sprint finish or in the breaks. Goss will get some sprint wins no doubt. Hilly classics not so strong, but not bad, will certainly be visible. After that how much more can you ask for and at what cost? The only Australian any good at climbing is Evans, can't get him...so what is the incentive to buy climbers from other countries?
As the team progresses, if Porte becomes a stage racer, or Cam Meyer develops that way then maybe we can talk climbers until then, specialisation seems a better option to me.
yeah i rekon ur spot on mate.
