btw - I'm really disappointed in the UAE so far tbh. They serious need to get a team to support Pogacar in the mountains. They have many young good riders but they really lack in Domestiques/Climbers. They got Majka and he'll of course be more helpful than Aru, but I don't see him being good enough to be there in the end on the last clim with Jumbo and Ineos. Pogacar can't win Tour de France without a team again. Jumbo will not make that mistake again + Ineos will be aggressive with Thomas, Benal and Cararpaz.
Hello, i have some moments talks with Peiper and yes you are right Majka is not enough. But for me Mader, Barta, Lutsenko, Sanchez, Lopez, Kwiatkowski, Hart can good options to. I know from a very good contact that Uae try to buy Hiquita and/or Bettiol his contract.
Tour next year for me:
De La Cruz
Bjerg ( climb very good in Giro)
+1 new i am sure they will take 1 or 2 good climbers to.
But yes Uae was very late active on transfermarket.
