to be fair, it's not like Casper P. has shown much since winning Paris-Tours, and he just caught Covid as well and didn't train for a week.

But yeah, sure, Kragh should definitely be in, at least if it's really about stage hunting. In case the other seven are all domestiques for Bardet, it's a bit of a different story.

Have Vermaerke, Tusveld, Eekhof or Hamilton? Or Degenkolb for that matter? And do you think they would be equally motivated to show themselves the one time in their lives where the Tour was in their homeland?

I don't think he was out for a whole week, he sounded decently optimistic for the nationals in an interview with a Danish podcast.

Spekenbrink should seriously consider to fire Rudi Kemna & Matt Winston and hire Erik Breukink & Michael Boogerd instead to build a farm team that develops talents.

Finally they've got secure sponsorship with DSM and then it all goes down the ravine with their weird strictness and obsession.
You seem to think Spekenbrink is not part of the problem. He is. And he is also shackled to Kemna.

Well didn't it develop to the current extent once Spekenbrink was more absent because of his illness and Kemna effectively became virtually the boss.

Why is Iwan actually shackled to Kemna? That's a good question.

Breukink becoming president wouldn't be bad either. Especially if Spekenbrink struggles with health anyway. Let Erik take control and get things back in order.

Yeah and with the team also bringing Dainese Kagh Andersen would have also added something to their sprint train, not to mention the fact that he could have helped the rest of the team on potential crosswinds stages. Also not bringing a good Danish rider who would deserve to be on the team when the race starts in Denmark is a stupid move, lots of free PR and extra media exposure...
 
If you visit PCS in this moment, you‘ll be greeted by DSM jersey wearing cyclists, only… :)

Wiebes in Simac Tour, Arensman and Bol: three wins since yesterday! Glad for the team, these are some of the best days of their 2022 campaign… DSM gets hated a lot, and since their (male) cyclists hardly ever win anything, the (men‘s) team is unpopular and the team and riders get only few attention, clicks, likes, comments and so on.

Cees Bol used to be their top sprinter recently, and he today won the first race of his 2022 season!… (Glad that Dainese and Welsford are improving well) :)

I like this team a lot, so I‘m happy for them of course ;)

The team is not unpopular because they don't win enough, but because their leaders are control freaks who don't care for their riders or the team but constantly pretend to do so when they can't deal with people having own minds and bodies.
