    Who is the lead Director sportive for Ineos now ? They generally don't use a ropadope Tactic. I thought they stay off the front for a week or so . Maybe cant help it .

    Hadn't fully considered this, when it came to their tactics. Loosing such a key member of staff will be so hard to replace.

    It's just in a different context.

    Probably gab rasch or brett lancaster who will be imbedded in the ineos way, when they signed matteo tossato ( sp) i thought they would get a wily fox , but they don't seem to use him much in Grand tours.
  • What’s the feeding limit on mtf stages? Several Trek riders plus I think others having bottles handed to them inside the 20k banner

    Ineos have done the equivalent of sticking a man on the front to break up the chase.

    To be fair, their main two climbing domestiques (Sivakov and Amador) seem a way off their best form due to the crashes at the start of the race.
