Teams & Riders The Bora - Hansgrohe team thread

Page 31 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Bora on paper, has a stronger TdF team than Pogacar. The questions is whether they have the teamwork. Actually Pog's team is not really that interesting. He possibly has Bjerg and Majka. Pollit is over the hill. Soler too. Juan is having a bad season. Wellens is riding his own tdf. He should take the mexican - he is like a bottle of tequila on a bike.

Vlasov is like a russian caviar-fish, only getting older with age. Rogla is slim, perhaps actually a bit to slim.

Ähhmmm, have to say, that I disagree with most of what you wrote here.

Ayuso actually has a very good season until now. Bjerg and Majka are not scheduled for the tour. Politt also has a great season and will be a valuable helper, same for Wellens. For del Toro tour comes too early.
He has Almeida, A.Yates, J.Ayuso in his team, who would be leaders in all other teams then Visma, Bora, Quickstep and UAE. His team looks scarry, the question is more, if they can ride as a team with all their riders, who are not used to ride for a teammate and sacrifise their own chances...
 
It's an interesting debate, if it comes down to teams. UAE might be perceived as the strongest team and Yates likely to be key domestique in mountains for Pogi. Said that Vlasov really pulled through for Rogla at Dauphiné and Hindley could still deliver huge. Both teams with a lot of talent involved still a bit more more experience is on Bora side. Lets not forget Hindley is a GT winner.
