Interesting news from Team Ineos; Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome not in the squad to lead the Giro and Vuelta respectively. Bernal wil be the Tour leader, with Carapaz as No2 I would imagine.
Feels a bit ‘end of era’ but Brailsford typically unsentimental. Mind you Bernal and Ineos did not have a happy Dauphine so maybe Sky/Ineos are generally on the back foot this year. Brave to bet against them being ready come the Grand Depart of course.
I note Roglic and Dumoulin both expected to ride for Jumbo-Visma in the Tour although the former had a fall at the Dauphine. Very strong support squad too.
This year’s Tour starts 29th August.
