I like to see Kristoff giving it all for a team mate, but it limits his own opportunities, and as you say, in the classics often luck plays a factor as well - one crash at the wrong time, and you're going to miss those crucial 4 weeks of the year.

He must be one of the best paid riders in cycling (at Katusha at least he was reported to earn over 1.5 million Euro a year) and I guess if he wants to come anywhere close for 2020 again, he needs to win one big race at least. Having good and loyal domestiques is crucial for a team as well, but not at that price, and if the victories don't come early, Kristoff could risk running under pressure to get a good deal.
