    Ethan and Fred Wright have been schooling everyone at Herne Hill for the past 5 years. I think we all knew they'd both go on to a much higher level, much as Tao Geoghagen-Hart did before them.

    Sorry are we talking about track riding?

    It's a great laugh in the winter and all but I don't follow that either, since, y'know it's not road.

    You have heard of the Tour de l’Avenir and the baby Giro. I don’t think they run those on the Manchester Velodrome.

    Aye nor are they World Tour races or 1.HC Belgian races, right?

    I appreciate the point of this forum is a nerd off, and I appreciate I have committed a faux pax by not only admitting I didn't know of a talent, but even worse, he's a brit!

    Totally off topic, but I can thoroughly recommend pruning away the rubbish races you're not that into.

  • Dennis apparently signing to Ineos for 2020. No excuses re eqpt or training there. In fact I would have thought the internal competition is a bit more intense. Brailsford will love that.

  • a bit more than apparently

    For GC or as a super domestique who targets individual TT wins?

    Initially the latter, but not too late for the former

    Can't imagine it's a popular hire for the bus, but then again they have Moscon so perhaps they're used to it.

    You'd have Rowe in there. His Tour record is five wins out of five.

    Agreed, take Geoghegan Hart out.
  • I'd like to see Sosa in there, not sure who he'd replace
  • r0bhr0bh Posts: 1,407

    Agreed, take Geoghegan Hart out.

    Based on this year you'd take Moscon out wouldn't you? Or Kwiatkowski
  • andypandyp Posts: 8,090
    Van Baarle was Ineos' most valuable domestique in July, he'd be one of the first names on the team sheet.
  • Van Baarle yes. Can't see what Rowe brings over Hart

    Moscon out is fine by me :)

    Crosswinds? I thought Rowe was the best roadcaptain

    Replacing Hart with Rowe makes it as strong a team as you could possibly wish for. Only issue would be 4 captains.

    If Froome gets back to his old self theres only one leader.
