Would like to see Albanese have a crack at the cobbles. Agree that the wildcard options for that final spot are highly underwhelming though.The Italian teams are not that strong, neither Eolo, Bardiani or Corratec has a rider that gives me "he should race Flanders"-vibe.
Good point, which is why I would guess Q36,5 will get San Remo and Roubaix, but miss out on L-B-L for Tudor or Kern Pharma.aIt's a nice job you're doing. I would like to point out that for wild-cards you always have to look at the big picture as well. Uno-X is heavily balanced towards ASO races, while Q36.5 should be balanced towards RCS races.
On top of that, it's not likely Q36.5 get invites for all those ASO races as a package. It is possible Q36.5 is the "5th best individual candidate" for Paris-Roubaix, LBL, Paris-Nice... but on aggregate it is virtually impossible they get on all of these races. If ASO selects Q36.5 on Roubaix, they will likely give Tudor an invite for LBL.
Yay, I am so happy.Tour de France:
Yay, I am so happy. I am glad I found your post. When I was looking for your post, I also found https://letsgradeit.com/review/edusson/ website where I can read reviews for an essay writer. Now, I won't have to search reviews online on different websites.
Is NN still sponsoring one of the RCS races? Because (besides the good PR) that's what usually got them the MSR wildcard...yeah, 3+4 wildcards for the momuments.
Usually it never feels like there's much competition. ASO seems to shuffle the teams around a bit for their races, and unless RCS wants to invite Novo Nordisk again, there should also be enough room for the teams interested in Sanremo. Maybe there'll be a bit of a "battle" between Corratec and HPH or so.

the team still did MSR in 2021, but no RCS races since, yeah. "Changing Diabetes" is not listed as a sponsor on the race website anymore indeedIt's a few years since they last got an MSR wildcard.
in the end it went to Kern Pharma indeed, while Burgos got a surprise call for Fleche WallonneLiege-Bastogne-Liege:
In 2022 there were 25 teams at start line. The following 7 Pro Teams were at start line: Arkea, Alpecin, Total Bingoal, Sport Vlaanderen, Uno-X and Kern Pharma
For 2023, let's assume they will fill all 25 spots again, meaning 7 wild cards. I think it's pretty obvious who will get them:
The two Belgian teams did really bad in Liege this season, but I think they will get a new chance anyway. For the last 2 spots there are more good candidates than there is for Flanders or Roubaix.
- Lotto - Automatic
- Total - Automatic
- Israel - Automatic
- Bingoal - Belgian team, therefore given.
- Flanders Baloise - Belgian team, therefore given.
Uno-X: Invited this year, but Greegard best in 28th place. Race was more or less ruined for Uno-X when Halland Johannesen crashed. THJ should be a potential top 10 rider.
Eolo-Kometa: Could have a very interesting team around Fortunato and Albanese, but they might be too focused on prepping for the Giro to go for this with their best team?
Tudor: Kamp could be a potential top 5 rider in this race.
Q36,5: Not a great team for the hilly classics, but obviously a candidate.
Kern Pharma: was invited this year, but best rider in 63rd spot. Roger Adria could be a potential top 10 rider.
The other Spanish and Italian teams could be candidates, but they don't have very attractive riders.
My guess is that Uno-X and either Tudor or Q36,5 will get the last two spots.
