At least the races are not suffocated like with Sky.
Doing 40km solo's or duo attacks isn't better to me imo, but I get where you're coming from. Sky Train was definitely really boring but atleast we didn't see them in the classics
They are not way richer. That is simply not the dynamic that's going on here. They were the worst team in the Worldtour just 5 or 6 years ago, and they've worked their way to the top not by outspending everyone but by outsmarting everyone. And of course they have a bigger budget now than they had then, because success attracts sponsor money... but as we can see from Jumbo potentially pulling out, maybe not as much as you would think.
Oh come on, yes Jumbo probably has some good riders that are being lowballed a bit cause they want the Jumbo effect, but just look at their selection. It's insane. They have a huge budget. Not UAE or Ineos budget, but they're definitely 3rd and miles ahead on 70% of the teams. They literally contracted the Paris Roubaix winner of last season, Kelderman and Tratnik are also not cheap. The year before they got expensive Dennis. And then I'm not talking about the - apparently - pretty good contracts their 18y old youngsters are already on. That's like Lefevere saying year in year out their budget is small and everyone is doing charity work for them and not earning anything. Everyone knew that was just BS.
Ofcourse they were smart and they deserve props for how they build up their team, but they do things other teams simply can't do because they have a way more limited budget. Like the massive amount of altitude camps for example, or take on the best trainers, or get their riders the best supplements, etc. The positive thing is that it isn't just a rich Arab guy who just randomly blasted in 50 milion euros, but they they had an organic growth, but you can't deny that - right now - they are one of the richest teams in the peloton and are benefitting from it.
That being said, I don't care how rich they are, they dominant, so boring to me and yes than I rather see some other teams beat them. You can call that dumb, but it seems like a lot of people are really dumb then.
