Silva is the only thing stopping a 1-2-3 on GC lol
Doposo will return next year. After that expect Alarcon to evolve from a also-ran in every terrain to a dominant force crushing everybody...trevim said:I never had realised Alarcon was so high on GC. Kind of difficult to fight such a team, specially with talented riders like António Carvalho riding as domestiques.
I hope Veloso, Sousa, Alarcon,... all retire soon. Or at least I hope some of the kids step up to leadership
Like in the prologue. Rafael Reis won and instead of congratulating him, the first thing Veloso said to the interviewer was that he could have won the it had it not been for the machanical.Zinoviev Letter said:Really? His teammate won the race and Veloso is openly whining about it?
Swear to god, they were interviewing a Radio Popular man (I think the 3rd place podium finisher - Daniel Mestre) in the flash interview area in front of Vinhas who was just sitting by them having a breath after finishing the ITT and coming to grips with actually winning the whole shebang. Mestre was singing Vinhas' praises and actually looking glad for the guy winning. Veloso rolls up with a face like he just chewed on a a bag of cow manure and starts a long-winded "Yeah I'm happy for the team, but I think everyone saw what happened on the road and who was strongest". The interviewer made sure he spelled that out for everyone to hear again too.Zinoviev Letter said:Really? His teammate won the race and Veloso is openly whining about it?
FC Porto has a 5 year deal with the team. And a Pro Conti Portuguese team would maybe show that Portuguese riders aren't that bad. I think that maybe some spanish WT races would invite them even the Vuelta.luckyboy said:What would a Portuguese team theoretically do as a ProConti? Seems like things wouldn't change a lot for them.. You think Pais Vasco and Catalunya would invite them?
Was just thinking about it because I saw a tweet about Antonio Carvalho saying he wants W52 to be ProConti
In fact, since last year you can ride the Volta as a preparation for the Vuelta. Like Dauphiné and Tour. The Vuelta only begins in the last period of August but the Volta begins in the end of July and finish in the end of the first week of August. There's time for recovery. Gonçalves is an example. He is ride the Volta as a preparation for the Vuelta and went pretty well to be honest.luckyboy said:I would like to see some of these guys in a race like that. Vuelta is too close to the Volta for their best guys to be in top form for both though, no?
Also I messaged you yesterday about the transfers you mentioned..
