Re: AG2R news

They seem to be undisputed top dog now in France and while competition is healthy, spreading talent too thinly isn't. Now, if AG2R have got a contender on the cobbles or in the mountains, they'll be really well supported*; and that's all you can ask of a team really.

*(note the difference between Betencur's support in last year's P-N and Thomas').

Funny you say that because PN last year was another watershed moment for AG2R and one that even Sky could learn from. It was the first moment I remember seeing the Boys in Brown working effectively as a unit for Betancur rather than under the general instruction of everyone just hang on to the leaders as long as you can. Such a positive surprise.
