Mas is never going to be the new Contador.I never said that. It just seems that they tend to rely on him to get the victories as none of the others seem to do much. When is Mas gonna start being the next Contador? It's great that he won today and he looked good but where is the future?
They don't currently have a very good team and haven't really had many options for awhile. However, they do have a few young riders whom need time to develop. Mas isn't going to be Contador, but can do well in GTs. He has to have time to build racing form. Soler is one of the most inconsistent riders ever. Cortina needs to get better at getting form early in the season. Jorgenson just needs time to develop. Plus Lopez is still out with Covid/injury recovery. They are hoping to get him racing this month.I never said that. It just seems that they tend to rely on him to get the victories as none of the others seem to do much.

8 years is a bit of a stretch, I think up to 5 years ago, pre trident, they still look formidable and considered one of the best teams in the mountain, winning races with four or five riders. Their 2014-2016 squads were still a nice one, tactical confusion aside. And of course they still won GTs not so long ago, surely within 8 years.As tobydawq said, this line of thinking of why are they relying on Valverde has been going on for the better part of the past 6 to 8 years.
He was loosing ground at the start of the climb but then started to pace very good to recover the head. At the end the Roglic attack was too much.What a ride! Wasn't expecting a podium today.
Was it just legs that caused him to miss the final acceleration, or a tactical error?
He said he was going to Valencia.Are you sure about Valencia? I think after Catalunya and Itzulia he doesn't need another stage race before the Ardennes. Some rest and he should be in top form there...
