I think its Coppi Bartali instead of Catalunya and as you say chances for more points in a weaker field, than Catalunya that will probably have a better field.

He needs a race between T-A and Ronde/the Ardennes, so it is a win-win situation hopefully.

Of course not doing Itzulia, with that starting right after Ronde.
I mean in his usual schedule it replaces Itzulia as final pre classics stage race.

So to have Bora's schedule also here:
Giro: Kelderman, Buchmann, Hindley, Kämna
Tour: Vlasov, Bennett, Schachmann, Politt, Großschartner, Konrad
Vuelta: Higuita

Just looked up the teams of the favourites for this years giro.

The depth of Bora´s giro team is pretty strong in comparison to the other teams. Ineos also looks strong, although they will also go with one (or two) spaces for a sprinter. Almeida´s team for now looks a bit weaker..

UAE doesn't look that weak to me. Although INEOS looks stronger, that's true.

Btw...you forgot Harper for Jumbo Visma;)

Harper is too important to be listed only once.. ;)

The spring schedule for Higuita is out:

NC
Strade Bianche
Volta Catalunya
País Vasco
Ardennes Classics

The vuelta as big target later..


I think in Catalunya and Pais Vasco we will get already an idea where he stands after two weaker years..

Vlasov schedule:

40+ race days before the Tour, if I did my homework.
Bit of a heavy schedule for someone with the Tour as his main target of the season.

So the cycling season 2022 is closed to the beginning and I just looked a bit to find out which World Tour teams still didn´t announce the targets of their top riders for the next season.

I´m missing

  • EF Education - Easy Post (Uran, Padun, Carthy, Powless, Cort, Bettiol)
  • Movistar (Mas, Aranburu, Sosa)
  • Team DSM (Bardet)
  • Ineos (only part of the giro team announced yet)
Did you hear something about them?

EF is normally always late, but will be interesting. Well Movistar is a bit of a low brainer (I think Mas will go another time for Tour and Vuelta). Bardet would make sense to go for the giro and vuelta once again, if the sponsor doesn´t want to see him at the tour. Because Ineos giro team is already announced, one can imagine also tour and vuelta..

Ef should send guys like Cort and Bettiol to the Tour after the spring classics, that would be the logical move, same with Valgren.
I'd send Eiking also to the Tour with Uran as a 2nd option, during the last 2 years Uran has suddenly started to fade at the end of a gt, so having a backup option wouldn't be a bad idea.
From what I've heard Kudus will ride the Giro, but that'S the only thing I've heared about the Giro team. I'd go with Carthy for Giro-Vuelta once again and I'd give Padun a free role at the Giro, the other option would be to have him focus on one week stage races, a big win in the Dauphine or the Tour de Suisse could create lots of buzz around the team.
