This whole calendar seems a little shortsighted. Giro and Vuelta overlap, but the TdF runs the biggest cancellation risk due to being the earliest race. Moreover to me it seems you can't have any mass events untill a vaccine exists so that would annul the whole calendar. Better have a small amount of controllable races without general public, like the Champ Elysees crit, Strade Bianche with finish before Sienna, some high profile time trials and maybe some city circuits WC/EC with locked down streets. Then we could be reasonably sure these events would actually happen.

e; gently caress it let's have a crit on every F1 circuit that is willing.

Its okay we're gonna get another Festina with Jumbo to keep things interesting.

Analyses show that everyone is riding slower than last year, it's just that the rich teams came out of the Corona crisis much better than the poor teams because they could keep trainers, food scientists, masseurs etc employed. This explains the dominance of a few teams with solid sponsors: quick step, jumbo, Ineos, Bora.

They'd be too worried about controlling flat and crosswind stages to take a team of climbers and rely on Thomas to do all the pulling in the wind. Ganna and Dennis are 100% going to the tour for sure.

Isn't Ganna going to do the Olympics?

Also if Sunweb leadership hadn't hosed up the Stelvio stage and had Hindley wait, Kelderman would have won this.

He lost most of his time in both stages on the flatter parts, alone against the Rohan. Having Hindley with him would probably saved the 1:30 needed to win this Giro.

e; When Tom Dumoulin won the Giro he wasn't the fastest climber by a long stretch. It's possible to win the overall without the W/kg when needed.

e2; I'm know I'm captain hindsight, but I yelled it at my girlfriend when the Stelvio was happening so we have at least one witness ;-)

There's a nice little row in Dutch media as it has become apparent that the Dutch cylcing union has been keeping apositive EPO test under tabs for over 9 years because the rider just pensioned immediately. They have however not released the riders name, just confirmed the incident, so now every Dutch racer is bombarded on the socials because people are really retarded.

Addy Engels (Eddy English) and Servais Knaven Both would be a pretty big deal. Addy works at jumbo-visma who actively try not to employ former dopers. Knaven, who I've known as het last Dutch winner of Paris roubaix until Terpstra squeezed in, was actually really good and has been working for sky which would fit the narrative better. Still it might have been a nobody or a women even, the story is in the wichhunt for every active cyclist at that time.

Going to repeat myself that this is all based on unverified sources and conjecture from one Dutch journalist. He might be right, he might be full of poo poo.

E: apparently Jumbo is working on a plan to get Tom fit for the TdF. They might not have listened to him that well.

How would UAE not know that before they signed him?

The narrative is that they just don't give a gently caress. Also Sunweb (now DSM) has a policy of not saying anything bad about their ex-employees and in this case there is a non disclosure in place.
But again, this is the Dutch press generating rumours without any named sources.
