I'm not a re(a)dhead, but I definitely need to use it heavily to avoid sunburn.

But I think Vingegaard spends enough time in sunny weather during the season, that he and JV must know how to protect him properly. But wearing black in the Tour might not be the smartest.

Kuss might be stronger on the steep MTF. But on a stage like today, 100% from the start, up and down the whole day, I'm taking Vingegaard over Kuss and it's not close.

Definitely needs to be in the TDF roster. Some rest now and then build towards July.
Yes, Jonas is a more versatile rider and is going to be a better asset for up-and-down and flat stage sections. He also had a great TT in stage 1. (I would still want Kuss for high mountain stages, though Vingegaard could be strong there, as well.)

Does anyone know why Vingegaard has turned down going to the Olympics?

On the face of it, it seems like a weird decision, on a route which he could actually be a medals candidate on.

Especially because he cannot be sure, that there will ever be an Olympics route to suit him again, in his career.

2024 is Paris, so probably a "sprinters on Champs-Elysees" type thing.

2028 is Los Angeles, so probably a route to fit the puncheurs.

2032 - which would be his last shot - nobody knows where is.

Vingegaard dropper OL for at fokusere på To... | Feltet.dk

And why would 2032 be his last shot? You don't think anyone could do well at the Olympics at the age of 40?
