Tao’s being tipped as a dark horse for today by the Dutch national broadcaster...
As long as he is in front of Valverde that will be fine . His tweet this morning is very human.
He’ll be working for Kwiato surely.
I know it goes against Sky’s usual defensive tactics, but getting someone of the quality of TGH up the road with 80-50 kms to go would force other teams on the defensive. Kwiatkowski needs a hard race to get rid of the likes of Matthews and Valverde before the flat finish.
Eurosport the home of cycling with 10mins of skiing crashes...
Tao joint leader for Ineos at the Giro with Sivakov after Bernal's broken collarbone!
The odds on him winning were 500/1 last week, I was going to put something on then hesitated...
The odds are 500/1 for a reason.
Ineos suddenly looking about light. For all his promise I’m not sure TGH has what it takes at the moment. It’s a great opportunity though which will provide great experience and great to see another Brit leading a team into a grand tour.
They're not 500/1 :P
But yes I do realise that and there's a reason why Yates is 11/4!
I have got a bet on but it's risk free so if I lose (which is most likely) I get my money back anyway.
I've not listened to this yet but it's meant to be good
It's a good honest interview. Seems he learnt a few lessons from the Vuelta as well which will help him with the next few weeks.
One thing I don't think I believe Brailsford is when he claims there's no plan ...
Sky/Ineos have been racing differently in stage races this season I think, more racing guile rather than simply overpowering the peloton with a team of ringers. Their approach to the Giro is going to be very interesting without Bernal and no clear leader. I expect them to cause a lot of problems and I hope Tao is at the heart of the maelstrom.
Oh and INRNG gave him a chainring for the Giro. First of many
Great to see that Tao wasn't involved in the big crash today and finished in the chase group 18 seconds down. Back up to 30th on GC, although still at 2:19 behind Roglič.
Shit, just realised I've not watched the stage.
Ah, sorry, I forgot that whole 'don't spoil it for hippy' thing.
Caught up now. Knock yourself out.
Love how chill he was when interviewed at the start.
