Enric Mas is Movistar's top GC rider. Valverde has free reign to do whatever the heck he wants. At this point they are the top two leaders of the team. This Giro was Soler's chance to prove himself and he was having issues before he crashed. Lopez has a 1 year contract and may or may not re-sign after this year. Soler needs to be a stage hunter instead of a GC rider....and apparently Carlton Kirby appeared to be blaming Stannard for not looking where he was going. Smith says it's just a racing incident, it probably was but Impey should know better than that at his experience level. Supermán 4th in the sprint for the line and Koronin is going to be mighty confused as it appears a guy who has never finished a GT outside the top 10 might be positioned higher than 4th in the food chain at Movistar.
