Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
It was Pinot who made it a team participation in Trentino, and he won't be there: he'll be riding the three races that you mention, on his home soil, and say goodbye to his fans.No surpise when they have the three hilly one day races in France from Friday to sunday.
Gaudu was in his third pro season and over 2.5 years older than Martinez will be in July at the time of the 2019 Tour, with a lot more experience and results to his name too. I think it's a bit early to throw him into that role, doing the Vuelta (which he's actually scheduled to do) instead makes more sense to me. The Tour can come next year if he progresses as expected.I hope that Lenny is brought to the Tour to be to Gaudu what Gaudu was to Pinot in '19. He would grow so much.
Look who just got his first pro win!
(I might consider changing the thread title to "Lenny, the best French Martinez". But of course I don't know if some of the old people on the forum will agree that he's better than his father and grandfather were.)
Since I'm one of the "old people", here's my take: I was a Mariano fan and I see more with Lenny. He can be the best French Martinez. He's not there yet.Look who just got his first pro win!

He's probably gonna get rekt so hard in the ITT that he'll only be red in one spot.It would be great for the race if he rides up the Tourmalet still in red. I expect him to leak several minutes however in the TT and that could be a challenge if he loses time elsewhere on the climbs. I think a top 10 overall is now realistic for him and would still be a very good result although he might now hope for more.
