Kirby gets a bee in his bonnet about certain riders and that is all we hear all day every day

Don't get me started on his Manny Buckman quips...He talks like he is best mates with 'Manny' and knows all his thoughts and brings him up everytime he can
At least since Hayter is there he hasn‘t mentioned Omar Fraile as a potential winner for every stage.
 
And Hayter is actually better off targetting the gc at smaller stage races than trying to sprint...
How is he going to manage that, when he is lingering at the back all day every day? One split in the peloton and he loses minutes. He is a catastrophe when it comes to positioning. Best he could do is focus on 10-20k ITT's when Ganna, Evenepoel, Roglic... aren't there.

In 2022 he won the gc in Poland and was 15th in the Dauphine. So it's not that much of a stretch to have him target easier, small stage races.

But yeah, you are't wrong when it comes to his positioning...
