Yeah, with that team selection, it is clear Lotto is all in for Ewan at the Tour - and nothing else (except of course for De Gendt doing De Gendt things).Nope, Brent Van Moer and Harry Sweeny are selected. No Degenkolb either, So I would've expected Kron, but I guess Lotto only cares about Ewan (and maybe a shot at the green jersey this year?). A bit dissapointing to me. Not gonna be seeing any LTS riders in the harder stages, maybe De Gendt but doubt it.
Not that Sweeny is bad ofcourse. He has been riding really well all season and has been riding a lot with the guys that are going to the Tour, but Krön has proven to be able to win.
I think Kron could have surprised as a break away rider on hilly and mountain stages, maybe even go for polka dots - but that being said, that is hard to do with any degree of success, if your very first GT is the Tour.
Guess we'll have to wait on the Vuelta to see.
