There is no excuse for them not to be delivering. Their team is ridiculously talented from the top to the bottom of their roster and even if they don’t have a Pogacar, Roglic, Van Aert or MVDP they should still get plenty of good results.LOL at Ineos dominating the races this weekend. For all the criticism that they get they are delivering.
But on the top end I do not think they can really contend for the win. Actually, I give Martinez now kind of the best shot at a podium. Not sold by Yates and Thomas (any more).The Tour team looking better and better. We couldn't say this at the beginning of the year but looking at the team:
And maybe they decide to take Carlos Rodriguez for the learning. I don't know who else can they pre-select that is worth mentioning here.
On the other hand Dani Martinez only lost time to Pogacar (12sec only) on the one stage that I was the most worried about. At least for him that's a good day.Under the radar a bit because of the Jumbo shitshow but what a pathetic display today. Not only being put into the dirt by Bora and daddy Pogacar once again but taking ages to contribute to the chase. Thomas never putting his nose into the wind and totally relying on Van Aert to bring them back. Can't wait for pointless trains in the mountains that do nothing.
Very glad Hindley wiped the floor with them in the Giro.
