Bora have Buchman, and as we know from the whole Bennett-to-Quickstep, they prefer to have a German leader. Unless they've learned their lesson on that.AG2R one and maybe Bora the other giving him the 1st choice of which GT to lead ahead of the other GC riders on their teams and UAE and Movistar maybe offering being leader or co-leader of 1 GT per season
I can see Movistar writing him a blank check if one of Lopez, Mas or Soler doesn't podium the Tour this year.
Frankly, I'm surprised to not see Trek's name in there. Nibali and Mollema are barely good enough for stage hunting any more, and Ciccone is a top 10/stage hunter type rider, and what else do they have?
