I'd be very surprised if Pog rode the giro. He's the overwhelming favourite for the tour. Froome rode the giro cause he didn't know if he'd be allowed ride the tour and Dumo rode the giro cause he wasn't confident enough to go all in on the tour. I expect all the rocket launchers at the tour. That leaves Tao for the giro.

I'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.
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 o_O) They have more cards to play next year

No amount of money will bring Slovenians. Both teams have enough money and won't want to risk preparations for TDF. Only way I see it, if Pogacar gives opportunity to Roglic so he can have his TDF and goes to Giro. But sponsors won't allow it, for sure.

BTW, who gets that money? Does it goes directly to the rider or team? How is it split?
Didn't Vuelta organizator pay some money so Roglic started in 2020?

I quite don't get the Egan-Israel team up rumor at all. Is Froome making them up? :laughing: 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

I don't think Bahrain, Astana or EF would be a good fit, but at least Bahrain would be better than Israel. And I agree that he might see them putting their hopes on Pidcock, (Hart) and Hayter.
