I really hope that he doesn't go to the Tour unless he wants a pure domestique role because with Roglić, Van Aert and Vingegård there is no room for his personal ambitions.
Unless Vingegaard goes to another GT as leader, but that seems unlikely with barely any TT kms in the Giro and Roglic going for revanche again in the Vuelta.I really hope that he doesn't go to the Tour unless he wants a pure domestique role because with Roglić, Van Aert and Vingegård there is no room for his personal ambitions.
Giro-Vuelta is the obvious choice but sadly he doesn't seem to care about the latter one.
I don’t see that in the article. It says he
Just because Vingegaard is good in TTs, it doesn't mean he can't be good in a GT with (very) few TT kms.Unless Vingegaard goes to another GT as leader, but that seems unlikely with barely any TT kms in the Giro and Roglic going for revanche again in the Vuelta.
yeah... but then he took some time off in 2021. Although he was already on a very high level at the olympics TT and Benelux Tour, we don't know about climbing yet.Clearly, first even if there is only 25km of lTT it's already 1'30-2min on Lopez /Yates/Landa/ Carapaz & co. When you see that in the TDF 2020 he was 7th, at less than 2min of Landa and Mas 5th and 6th, 1min of Lopez in very mountainous TDF with only one TT (with the planche des belles filles who is normally to the advantage of thèse Guy), With a TD who back to racing After 420 days, overtrained according to him and saddle problems. I don't know why je couldn't fight for the pink or for the podium.
I'm not a Tom doubter, i've always been somewhat of a fan of his. But i do fear his 2017-2018 level won't be enough to compete with the Slovenians. Podium, yes. Any GT without Pog/Rog, yes. And on top of that i also fear he might not even reach his old level, when in fact he should even do better than his old level.Tom doubters, is your theory that he won’t get back to his level or that his old level isnt competitive at the very top end of the current field?
I think oddly, the biggest Tom doubter is...Tom. He's said as much many times and his actions have backed this up. I think when he shows he really wants to be there, and then starts compete for the win in top races, we'll all see that and believe in what he's doing. Maybe he's heading in that direction. I hope so, I like him as a rider.I don't think there are Tom doubters. It is just that some people have concerns about the time off from last year and racing a bit less than usual. Probably the biggest concern that I have is if he is going to pick up exactly where he left off when he was challenging for GT's.
We don't care about road conditions. How are the bus drivers in the area?Training in Colombia. But around the Antioquia area. Roads are in good condition.
