In a casual interview with Laura Tesoro (Belgian singer/dancer/media figure) he says his entire preparation is focused towards the Giro, implying all other goals will be of lesser importance and not determining his training schedule in a significant way. I guess we already knew/expected this but there you have it. Can he win the Giro? He's eager and hopes to be able to say "yes" on the final day of the Giro.
Since yesterday, the Burgos website has been updated. No longer the 2019 race, but "some" info on the 2020 race. The first stage is already posted, with a cat1 climb in the middle of the stage: +/- 6.5% for +/-6.5km.The program of Richard Carapaz is mostly identical to Evenepoels.
Burgos, Poland, Tirreno (I expect to see Remco there as well) and the Giro of course.
He could also be a podium candidate for the World Championships road race.
Burgos is going to be interesting. The opposition is the strongest he's ever faced (Carapaz, Yates brothers, Mas, Quintana, Landa, Majka, Valverde, Sosa, etc...) and the finish on the Picon Blanco looks particularly brutal.
If anyone has the stage details of this year's edition, I'd love to know.
