Since this is also a "rumors" thread, can we try to get ahead of the Carapaz-to-Ineos rumblings that have been going on?

Obviously Ineos has the deep pockets, but they also have Froome and Thomas (and Bernal). So where would that leave Carapaz?

And how would adding the Giro champion to their lineup do anything other than create more tension amongst the team's current stars?

Movistar, on the other hand, has proven the ability to support Carapaz as a team leader, and the longevity of the team speaks for itself—in Spanish, no less. Speaking of: In addition to Spain, Movistar has a huge presence in both Central and South America, so having the likes of Carapaz to represent their brand seems like something worth fighting for. They already have a presence in these countries:

Argentina
Chile
Colombia
Costa Rica
Ecuador
El Salvador
Guatemala
Mexico
Nicaragua
Panama
Peru
Uruguay
Venezuela

...and the home page for Movistar Ecuador is already seizing on his Giro victory.


So I would think that the opportunity for further personal endorsements would be greater for Carapaz under the Movistar banner than that of Ineos.

Besides, does anyone really want to see Carapaz at Ineos, besides maybe Ratcliffe and Brailsford?
