Vuelta for stages. I could see that happen.Would be good to put him to the Vuelta this year for maybe 2 weeks to give him second longer than usual race but not full GT. And with domestique duties, for Almeida, Masnada or whoever but absolutely not leader role. Getting bottles and stuff would be excellent training for him in highest playground, burst power and technical that he needs. Then Worlds, then rest, training and longish cx-season to give something else to think about and most of all technical and burst power. Then progressive roadtraining and racing and then hopefully full Giro.
