Other members have already voiced their opinion which I really don't agree. For me there were several reasons and they all were good at the time:Still wondering why the hell did he pick Arkeas. Cant believe no WT team desired him.
1- Reunite with brother and training partner Dayer and Winer.
2- Call the shots.
3- Still payed him good money.
4- Only leader
5- Gave him his options on training. Which is similar to point 2.
6- Reunite with old coach who still believed in him.
There were many pros if everything went right. Now everything was going perfect until Covid happened. Then the crashes and one thing lead to another. He is now seeing the reality of being in a small team. Which could be worse than reuniting with his brother which was a big dream of his according to him.
Having said all that Arkea is still the leading team in the points for Continental teams. The problem is that they are running out of races. If they make it in first place then they can go to all 3 GT's next year. He wants to go back to the Giro. He is now seeing that being in a small team there are limited opportunities to shine.
