    He'll be hoping Ineos have something that can get him to that next level but probably accepting that if you take the money there is every chance you end up as a super domestique. Either way it makes sense for him - he's what - 28? - if he's going to try something new better to do it now while you are in your prime.

    This, plus the fact that it looks like Ineos are moving toward having joint leaders in GTs, so even if he's mainly a super-domestique he's likely to get a protected role in Vuelta/Giro at some point.

  • Can he time trial? Yes, can he climb? Yes. He’s G.C. material for sure, I reckon he’ll be given a crack at at least one G.T. fairly soon. Will he enjoy being a hill Dom? Probably not, but I reckon that will be his role until he’s given the green light to go for a G.C. win.

    He will be domestique.

    And I always thought that his brother was the better of the two, so suprised that Adam ended up with Team Ineos.

    Well they couldn't sign Simon unless their policy has changed with the new sponsor.

    I think Ratcliffe said it had.
