As a hypothetical, if Pidcock abandons at the first rest day, does that make his selection for the Vuelta a mistake?

He sounded in the interview after the stage as though he thought the lack of power could be a one-time issue, but if he really does not have the legs right now, and what he said in the interview does not rule that out from my perspective, then abandoning after a week seems a real possibility.
Yes. Absolutely. That's not why he was brought here. There are a number of reasons why Ineos brought him here (Don't know the exact one(s)) and abandoning after week 1 is not one of them.
 
What do you all think about Sivakov and Tao GH? Not top tier talents, but they showed a lot of promise before, but haven't had the best seasons, to put it mildly.

Tao in particular has been consistently mediocre. A former Giro winner, even though it was defo a team effort and in the first COVID year.

Sivakov - considered to be the bigger talent - was a good stage racer before the pandemic hit. Haven't seen much of that anymore.

I wonder if Tao's early season concussion has had a longer term impact, certainly set him back to begin with.
 
Ganna is not a replacement IMO. He was already there and is a bit different kind of rider. I was expecting Moscon and Ganna to be next to Bernal's side in next year Tour. They need to explode the race in the first 5 days if they are expecting to have a chance.
The one thing that has impressed me with Ganna this year that we didn't already know about were his bike handling skills. Howw he rode on the sterrato and hiss cornering in the ITTs was really good. It makes me think that he should bee good on the cobbles.
