Paris - Nice 2015 Stage - 3
  • Dave

    Decent squad, they should be able to get a stage win or two if they get into the right moves or if the top shelf sprinters get gapped before a fast finish.

    They don’t appear to be targeting the TTT this time, probably because it comes in the second week and the course is quite hard with a climb at the finish.

    Does anyone know what has happened to Ivan Santoromita? I haven’t seen his name mentioned for quite a long time, he must have gone off to join a small terrorist cell in the Caucasus or something.

      Santamorita finished in the top 10 of the Tour of Norway. He was also in the Dauphine and Italian national championship, but didn’t finished mid-peloton.

      If they were not targeting the TTT, then Tuft wouldn’t be riding IMO.
      I’m sure it’s still one of their prime objectives.

        Tuft and Durbo are great at sitting at the front and setting the pace, so I think they’d be pretty helpful even if the team isn’t targeting the TTT…

    No Clarkey? Must be resting for the Vuelta

    Kinda surprised Durbo is backing up after the Giro; Cam Meyer would have been the logical alternative and reasonably fresh?

    Maybe one of the Yates lads can race for the under 23 cat.Also its good the Team are aiming to finish the Tour.Plus its wise leaving all options open takes the pressure off.

    hmmm… GreenEDGE have excelled at dominating the first week of the GTs, and that’s bought them stage wins, jerseys and lots of focus. I worry that by spreading themselves thinner they risk becoming just another 2nd division team picking up scraps left by the big boys… I can’t see the Yates boys making an impact in this company over 3 weeks… I hope Bling bails them out…
