As a team what they need is someone who can climb but also last long leading a peleton. Someone like Dennis, Castroviejo or WVA who on form can pace a peloton over a load of climbs and also be useful on the flat. Hirschi was probably who they wanted for that but he's been useless all year. Soler is definitely not that.So UAE lacks support and relies in this Tour on people who underperforms when working for others (Majka, Costa) are rumoured to sign another selfish rider who tends to offer little to no support to their leader. Great.
