Well, it was Bol who got Sunweb out last year.
Correct.True. In 2019 D*ck the Quick (fitting name) broke the protocol from the previous years which sparked a discussion that we always wait until we are down to 10 candidates.
As I said, not a big deal, especially since the 2 teams you left out are extremely unlikely to win but it would be kinda weird for a team to win that wasn't even in the poll.
Dainese.I also don't understand why people pick CCC (Van Avermaet & Trentin) over Sunweb (Benoot, Hirschi & Matthews) especially since Dumoulin isn't going to win ITT's for them anymore. Benoot is now a leader at Sunweb with two professional victories... he turns 26 in a month.
