It's **** you weather.

I would abandon without injury in **** you weather
Proper Scottish summer weather. I ride in that for about half the year...
There's a reason he went to Barcelona when he was 15 and doesn't live here anymore...
I thought it was RAFA who convinced Murray go to Spain :eek:
 
What a shitty season for Sunweb this is. Matthews crashed in the spring (but still got some decent results). Kelderman crashed out in the spring and missed the Giro because of it. Now Dumo crashed out in the Giro.

There's really nothing left this way.

Kelderman crashing probably wasn't really a surprise though

Last year Froome didn't have to make up a few minutes on multiple rivals
After Sappada (stage 15!):

Yates
Dumoulin 2'11"
Pozzovivo 2'28"
Pinot 2'37"


Froome 4'52"

Seriously, guys, you should go back and read Froome's topic from last year. The common opinion before Zoncolan was he had no chance to even podium. A lot of people claimed he should quit and heal.
I actually think if Tom's healthy he has a bigger chance to podium this Giro than Froome's had last year after two weeks of racing. A number of things have to happen, sure, but he's a champion.
Dam you and facts
Facts? Last time I checked, the definition of "few" was three or four. Only Yates was three plus minutes ahead of Froome last year.

Before Dumoulin pulled out of this years Giro, he was a few minutes behind multiple riders.

It was also assumed that Froome would not be allowed to ride the TDF in 2018 at the time of the Giro in 2018. In addition to that, Froome was attempting to hold all three GT's at the same time.

Not to forget Søren Kragh got sick after a very promising performance in Portugal and never found his legs again.

Seems like the team just cant catch a break.

When Reading the interview it sounds like he gave up because he lost time. A couple of flat Days then maybe he would have recovered. But he knows best, I Think he is the favourite to win the tour now.
 
Do you think Sunweb should now keep Oomen for the Tour...Sure Kelderman is back on his bike but way off his top I assume plus he could still crash again,

Wining a stage at the Giro is so so hard esp for a top 10 GC rider who is not usually in the break with de Gendt and co. There is no guarantee

He is today, though. Without De Gendt.
