Mentally it's more exhausting, especially for Cavendish, that has to do press briefings every single day, about trying to break the record, and generally the Tour just has a lot more media than other races.Going to the Tour is more exhausting than the Vuelta though. Going to France makes most sense if he's racing all the way to Paris; in the Vuelta he could abandon before the mountains. And media/public pressure is a lot stronger, as well as the competition. Doesn't make sense (at least as he said, maybe half jokingly, without extra pay), especially since he didn't plan his season for it to begin with.
Sagan will not be required to give up anything because of Kelderman.The other thing is, that an in-form Cavendish, even without winning stages, can very well be in contention for green, especially if Sagan and Colbrelli need to do a lot of work, because their GC guys are doing well.
Bookman will probably get another go, since he didn't complete the Giro, and Konrad did GC at Dauphine.Sagan will not be required to give up anything because of Kelderman.
Sure, but they never keep Sagan on a tight leash.Bookman will probably get another go, since he didn't complete the Giro, and Konrad did GC at Dauphine.
I'm not at all sure what Bora's targets are the Tour are, but I would not put it past them to have GC aspirations, especially if a couple of main contenders crash out early, as per usual.
Either way, all a moot point now.
Not even an article on Google for it yet as I immediately googled his name in the news.
