Pieter Weening is the next Dutch Tour winner, and you know it.Ryo Hazuki said:cobbled races are but a minor factor in cycling. teams without serious climbers and or gt riders should be left out
But if he doesn't, winning a few stages plus the green jersey will do. It's BS that a team should have a GT contender, HTC didn't have one either (except for that fluke Vuelta podium with Velits) and they did just fine. Now, whether you'll like them, that's a different story.
Also, Jack Bobridge is a great climber. He managed to hold the great Nathan Haas's wheel in that race the other day, remember?
