Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
Bernal picking up Thomas's crashing habits is not good either. For the poor guy's sake, send Bernal to some one day races in France to get some confidence back and spare his blushes at WT races every time it goes uphill.
Now this could be fun, Ineos are sending their, supposed, Giro team to the Tour of the Alps. It seems like it's going to be mano o mano within the team to see who goes to the Giro and who will be team leader. Why have management when you can "let the road decide"!
The wild thing is that Tosatto said that they expect Thomas to be really strong in the 3rd week, even stronger than in the last Tour. Do they want him to go full 2020 Rohan Dennis? I find it a bit stage that Tosatto will be doing stage recons and not the riders. Right now it might be a bit late, but how about doing recons of some of the key stages before the winter (or a bit earlier) yourself, like Haig did with Zambanini on his side?Yep, Hart seems to be the Ineos man for the Giro.
I don't know - Ineos/Sky have a long record of hiring riders and somehow messing it up. Since Bernal, things seem to have stagnated at Ineos.He should stay at Ineos. They're much better at supporting their riders for GC and he's clearly the best GC option within the team.
Agreed. They don't seem to have a clear direction they want to go. Classics, week races GT's?I don't know - Ineos/Sky have a long record of hiring riders and somehow messing it up. Since Bernal, things seem to have stagnated at Ineos.
Who would you have replaced?Luke Rowe not pleased at missing out on the Vuelta - "I'm pretty f*cking gutted actually,"
"You have setbacks in life and in sport don't you? But I think what you've got to remember is it's a bike race. Let's keep things in context," Rowe concludes. "That being said. A career is full of highs and lows and you can be going really well, looking forward to great things and then the next moment told 'you can't do them'."
INEOS Grenadiers for the 2023 Vuelta a Espana: Geraint Thomas, Filippo Ganna, Egan Bernal, Thymen Arensman, Laurens de Plus, Kim Heiduk, Jonathan Castroviejo and Omar Fraile.
In fairness to Luke, he asked the same question and conceded that it is a solid lineup without an obvious hole for him to plug. The wild cards for me are Bernal (although he fills a totally different role) and Fraile, who is going to be the de facto road captain. I don't understand Fraile's inclusion on the squad on a cycling basis, but I can't build a stronger case for Luke.Who would you have replaced?
