Carlstrom did an interview the other week with CN about the team's relegation woes and what they intend to do about it. Sending the in-form Bevin to Hongrie looks to be part of that plan. I think Norway is also on his calendar and there'll be no GT for him. They're obviously hoping he'll be the Ben Hermans of 2022.

Speaking of Ben, he has long covid and there's schedule for his return.

    Part of the Carlstrom interview also highlighted the sickness and illness that was rife in the team earlier in the year. I think the stat was 650 sick days since December (~20 days per rider on average). At one point 21 of their 31 riders were ill.

    ......could have been Hindley I guess, but I don't view him as the future of GTs.....

    This comment hasn't aged well.

    Nice to see his team mates celebrating too as they came over the line. :)

    Not bad actually. It's probably the best they could go for on this parcour (apart from Froome of course). A stage win is never a certainty, but I'd be disappointed if they're not in the action on all stages bar the absolute flat sprints.

    I guess the hope is that Fugly can avoid the first week drama and still be in contention for a stealthy top-ten in GC. While Woods can take things very easy and just hit the stages that suit him.

    Würtz in shape would be a great addition, I think - but he has been crap all year, and now caught Covid anyway. Solid team indeed. Go Hugo! :)
