So Bernal can be a component in the Sky Train in the mountains of the Giro and Vuelta. I anticipate seeing him walking around with this blank look in his eyes spouting Sky-speak and breaking my heart that they have irreparably broken his spirit.Valv.Piti said:Interesting.
Had hoped for Movistar and if not Astana, but I guess Sky isn't too bad either. They are getting a bad rep for only caring about brits and TdF, I mean, look at their roster.... they don't, really. Anyways, Bernal isn't expected to lead the Tour anyway soon (earliest in 2020) and by that point, Froome is 35. Hardly a problem. You'd want him to ride the Giro, the Vuelta, all the mountainous one week races first. I don't think Sky is bad in that aspect, they let their other riders get a chance in many races. if you are good enough that is and Bernal certainly is.
Ask yourself this: Why do you think they have bought him out of his contract?
