He’s capable of a TdF stage on the right course, he can maybe even win MSR with a team dedicated to getting him over the Poggio, but he won’t get to try while he’s on the same payroll as Sagan.
I think you're probably right there, I think after his Giro showing he'd get quite a bit of interest so I wouldn't be surprised to see him leave when his contract comes up for renewal.
Just saw that both Nico Roche and Dan Martin will be starting the Vuelta. Shaping up to be some decent Irish participation. Depending on how he has recovered from the Tour I'd hope for Dan to take a stage or two and be there and there about, sharing leader duties with Aru though. Nico Roche seems to have cycled himself into a bit of form, seemed to go well at the Arctic Race.
Movistar have a serious team going into the race, suppose we'll have to see which one of Valverde or Quintana wants it.
