I'm curious to see what bike will Vader use as I don't think Cervélo has any offerings for MTB right now.

Also curious to see so many riders focusing also on the road right now when the fight for the wins in XCO is more open than ever with Schurter not looking like the previous dominating man.
They are part of the same group as Santa Cruz; Minnaar was on a Cervelo road bike last week.....

Men's team should sign Lucas Eriksson from Sweden and Antti-Jussi Juntunen from Finland to build up a true Nordic team.

(Don't know about any pro/semi-pro from Iceland)
They are probably not going to do that, because the men's team is solely focusing on Danish and Norwegian riders.
I'm not sure Eriksson will be deemed as Danish enough, although he has spent the last three seasons with Riwal.

Probably just cooked after riding Giro-Tour and riding on a high level from Itzulia until the end of the Tour.
56 race days from April until mid July with 2 gts, that's a lot of racing.
Sylwester Szmyd would laugh at that.

In 2010 he rode and completed: Trentino, Romandie, Giro d'Italia, Dauphine, Tour de France and after all of that he still fought for GC in Tour de Pologne (which started within a week of the end of Tour de France).

He also did Larciano, Laigueglia, Strade, Tirreno and Gp Indurain before Itzulia. Between Tirreno and Indurain he was sick so couldn't do much proper training. And 1 week less between giro and tour this year. So he was doing National championships only 18 days after giro and then straight in TDF.

Remarkably heavy period of racing.

Bilbao would laugh at it himself. In 2020, he did Burgos, then the Dauphiné, then the Spanish TT nats, then the Tour where he was 16th, then both of the races at the Worlds the week after the Tour, and the week after that he started the Giro where he ended up in 5th place.
