All the comments about the schedule probably are useless because Unzue's fixation about the Tour is even bigger than Madiot's one, if he forces Valverde to ride in France after the Giro the spring schedule should be very light.


From Marca's article posted above:
"Puedes escribir para que lo lea Eusebio (Unzue, su director) que en 2019 quiero comenzar en Australia. A veces no le gusta porque sabe que es empezar al máximo y eso no es positivo si hago (como quiere) Giro-Tour, pero estando allí te garantizas 10 días de buen tiempo en enero"

If Unzue forces him to go to the Tour again, he'll again skip the Giro as he won't miss his beloved Vuelta.
 
His U-23 team has announced it's roster is set for it's first season of competition next season. The roster includes 4 kids who have moved up from the Junior team.

Also he now has a wine with his name on it and a picture of him at the Worlds.

This only means it's on his tentative calendar which it has been on previously. Hope he does race it, but at this point, it's under I'll believe he's racing it when he's actually on the start list the day before the race.
I totally read that as "on the start line", which would just be silly. It's one thing to come prepared, but sleeping on the start line isn't recommended.

:lol: :lol: I actually thought about start line, however if he's on the official start list he should actually be at the start line for it as well. :D

Except remember he's had it on his calendar in both 2016 and 2017 and didn't end up going. I want him to race Flanders, but I don't want to get my hopes up and then him not race it for whatever reason. Hopefully this is the year he does actually race it.

Alejandro's new car for anyone else who also likes sports cars.

With that car, I'm not sure why he still rides his bike so much.

I thought I wasn't the only one who would appreciate the car.

I'm sure he still rides so much because he loves riding. Today one of his friends posted a video of this new car after the training ride he and several friends did with Alejandro.
