It was last year at this point that their season started to produce results so fingers crossed.

The trend continues. Encouraging performances and today a result!

After Tro Bro Leon it was off to Croatia where Mr Turek did his thing and was in the break three (?) days in a row. He couldn't manage it on the final day though....

Diaz snuck into the top twenty on GC in Croatia and then followed that up with a much improved performance in Asturias where he was 11th on the queen stage in awful weather. Unfortunately he managed to ship 24 seconds on stage one and 27 on stage three which cost him an even better GC result (8th if we take away that time). Both stages ended with short sharp climbs topping out with ~10km to go, so whether he prefers longer climbs or he wasn't in a great position going into the ascent or not having teammates to help, it's something for him and the team to work on.

Here's a video on Jose. He certainly has a bit of the Jimmy Hills about him if you know what I mean.

The race he wants to ride is the Giro and he prefers Valverde to Contador.

One sad bit of news is no Baby Giro invite for the Devo team.
