Remco vs Joao at the Giro. Pogi will be there as a super-domestique (officially preparing for the Tour) and if the weather is cold he may win this race accidentally on some snowy pass (completing the first part of the double without pressure).So next year are going to have a new GT winner. I am no UAE fan but the prospect of a GT without Pog, Rog and Bernal should be really fun.
But I fear Almeida will get teamed up with Soler?! :O I still have no idea how Soler as a domestique is ever going to be a good idea
Lol "Almeida, Soler and the young guys"Yes they have a lot of fun. Almeida, Soler and the young guys. I expect next year Uae around 40 wins. And better team performances.
You know what i mean. Grosh was in car to.Lol "Almeida, Soler and the young guys"
Because Almeida is really, really old
Maybe he really will have those guys in the giro then. I wonder who was in the car with Pogacar I've also seen Almeida hang out with Hodeg, which also makes sense of course
Since the clip when I found it on Almeida fans says Rui Costa and Rui Oliveira that's my guessing. Whomever might be afraid Soler will Ruin him (ok, that was a really bad joke )Yes, and? He's not that much younger than Almeida, and older than both Pogacar and Bjerg.
Who's the guy in Soler's car, who looks like he's about to bail-out at one point?
Costa - being a former World Champion - would have rainbow bands on his sleeves. Though, I suppose he's not a former World Champion in this particular discipline.Since the clip when I found it on Almeida fans says Rui Costa and Rui Oliveira that's my guessing.

I am a bit faceblind but Costa is older while Rui Oliveira has a real babyface if I remember correctly
Uh something went wrong with my quotation fingers lol. But I gotta admit this looks like no baby face. This be Rui Oliveira Looks like the guy afraid of Soler?Costa - being a former World Champion - would have rainbow bands on his sleeves. Though, I suppose he's not a former World Champion in this particular discipline.
I think it's harsh to write someone off if they fail to beat Roglic in a one-week stage race.At UAE, there is this American rider, McNulty... In the past years, I more and more noticed people talking about him. He was meant to be great, a huge talent, and so on...
So I started following him a bit. He seems to be a nice guy, that‘s for sure. I, however, wouldn‘t consider him a future star... Maybe he already found his place as a valueable helper for Pogacar, now.
I just think this week in the Basque Country in April was a huge disappointment. McNulty seemed to be in top shape, and gets humiliated by Roglic on stage six. Pogacar, with all his class, limits his losses, whereas McNulty loses eight (!) minutes. I think this was a rare chance for McNulty to show what he‘s capable of, and he didn‘t deliver.
Since he seems a nice guy, I certainly wish him the best results. Pogacar in fact seems to be happy to have him by his side...
