Trouble brewing for Movistar at the Tour? Landa going, intent on winning. Whilst Quintana's expecting support from the full team.

 

That's not taking in to account whatever Valverde's doing!

Imo Movistar have cost themselves several of the grand tours by not declaring who the team leader was beforehand. Looks like they will be in a state again in France.

The allegations against Erzen are very serious - http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/bahrain-meridas-milan-erzen-under-uci-investigation-for-doping-links/

Bahrain-Merida may not survive so it's a smart move to go to team with an Italian sponsor.

Roglic to replace him? :rolleyes:

"Many of the 32 Slovenian riders in the professional peloton have been helped in some way or another by Eržen, including current Giro d’Italiafavourite Primoz Roglic, who raced for Eržen’s Adria Mobil Continental team between 2013 and 2015 before moving to what is now Jumbo-Visma.

There are six Slovenian riders on the Bahrain-Merida roster, plus head sports director and former rider Goradz Stangelj, sports director and former rider Borut Bozic, team doctor Marjan Korsic, and other staff."

Froome out of the TDF after breaking his leg in a crash. He was doing a recon of today's TT course at the Criterium de Dauphine.

Adam Yates now leads the GC at the CdD.

Sounds like a really bad one for Froome. Hit a wall at 60mph and may have broken his femur.

I broke my femur in a cycle race in 2009, took me 7 weeks before I could pedal again ,doubt very much if he will ride the tour of spain either, 

this type of injury has been career ending for some riders (Beloki) .

Chris Froome has broken his elbow and fractured ribs in addition to his broken right femur - http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/chris-froome-team-ineos-confirm-fractured-femur-and-elbow/. That's his season effectively over as his training schedule will be in tatters.

ETA - the BBC has added that he's got a broken hip too!  Chris is in intensive care and  it sounds very serious - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cycling/48617835. "We have had a look at his data, he went from 54km/h to a dead stop." :(

"The four-time Tour de France champion, 34, has suffered a fractured right femur, a broken hip, a fractured elbow and fractured ribs and lost consciousness following the crash."

That's a horrific list of injuries.

Hope so too, but all indications are that this accident was entirely his own fault.

Apparently has regained consciousness & may be cheered by JJ Cobo's positive test from 2011, giving him another Vuelta win & becoming Britain's first GT winner.

Something about just slapping grand tour titles onto other folk years and years down the line just seems daft to me.

No doubt Chris Horner's getting nervous.
