Both him and Verschoor retiring at the same time would be a big loss of experience.
Experience, yes - but just as much (if not more), ability.
Who else is there on #novonordisk who is capable of anything more than a 84th place?
Peron & Planet, maybe Lozano, Henttala & Poli, plus, in time, Brand and Valognes.
The rest is just not competitive.

It's great that they're racing professionally in spite of their diabetes ... but in some cases, I can't escape the feeling that they're in fact racing professionally because of their diabetes - they wouldn't have secured a spot on any other team.
