Wow, perhaps they haven't ever ridden together. I tried using procyclingstats head to head comparison, and it says they haven't. I don't see why they would need to split. They are both very different riders. Matthews climbs very well and won't really compete against the likes of Griepel and Kittel. Ewan is more of a pure sprinter. The only think I could see being a problem is if Matthews wanted to go for the green jersey. He would need to compete in the flat stages even though he'd only place in the top 5.TMP402 said:Have Ewan and Matthews ever been at the same sprint finish together, and if so, who led out whom? It seems to me Orica will lose one of them over the coming years to focus on the other. And if Gerrans was the same generation, it would be a further long-term selection dilemma.
