They did Slovenia in the giro this year as well and Pog and Rog weren't there. And UAE has said I believe that Pog will do TdF one more time, before targeting the others in upcoming years? It would be seriously weird if they risked it by trying to double giro and TdF? (Plus even UAE gotta understand what I do; Without Pog, Rog and Bernal at the giro Almeida chances of podium just skyrocketed ) They have more cards to play next yearI'm not sure, with a Giro stage finishing in Slovenia and RCS getting extra money from the start in Hungary I expect them to throw some money at at least one of the Slovenians, probably Pogacar.

I quite don't get the Egan-Israel team up rumor at all. Is Froome making them up? Bottom line is Egan won the only GT for INEOS this year and that counts above all the nonsense
Despite all said on MSM about some internal misunderstandings between him and DS, I'm more inclined to believe Bernal foresees INEOS being fully nurturing in the coming years the likes of Tom Pidcock & Tao Geoghegan Hart as the next UK Tour winners, than investing far beyond on Egan's Tour bidding & what he can accomplish until his contract expires.
If Egan & INEOS get to part ways, I'd see his next team to be BAHRAIN or ASTANA or even EF
In Spanish. With some comments from him. He is very happy with the deal. He sounds like Ineos is the right culture for him.New contract with Ineos until 2026. Looks like the noise from a couple of months ago about both sides being unhappy was exactly what most on here called it right away: made up rubbish.
With the Slovenians destroying Ineos ("Sky") lately hating "that team" is old news.
The infamous trains look stupid when Pogacar can take off at will. Lol!!
Sir Dave has a lot on his plate these days with the All Blacks and all the other Ineos sporting interests.Sir Dave Brailsford will surely solve this problem. "Expect the unexpected" is his new motto. Buying Rog&Pog should solve the problem but unfortunately for him sheikhs have infinite amont of money.
Bernal has now finished three seasons of a five year deal in which he's perhaps not been the all-conquering serial TdF-winner they'd hoped for, but his palmares is amazing for a 24 yo. He's far and away Ineos' best GT-rider for the foreseeable future with Roglic and Pogacar both tied down to long contracts. And given the fact Tadej just renewed for six seasons, my take is that Acquadro feels he's in a strong bargaining position and wants to leverage it by putting stories in the media. The more traction with other teams, the more pressure on Ineos to renew now and on bigger wages than putting it off for another year.
