Is it the Ineos team for the Tour de France?


If Ineos selects his team for the Tour de France, and it is not preceded by months of rumors and “the road will decide” quotes, will they even be on the starting line of the Grand Tour de France?

Since Egan Bernal became the first Colombian Tour winner last summer, many have wondered how Ineos would manage to balance having the last three Tour de France winners on the same team.

The long-term aspect of the problem was partially addressed by the announcement of Chris Froome’s departure for Israel Start-Up Nation, and the riders mainly clung to Brailsford’s diplomacy mantra of whoever is stronger during the race will become the team leader.

The next question that has arisen as the race approaches is whether Chris Froome will even be part of Ineos’ eight-man squad. Froome became a loyal servant to Geraint Thomas in the 2018 Tour, but do the British squad really want three former winners to dream of the yellow jersey rather than a dedicated gregario who will whip himself all day for the greater good of the? team?

The Gazzetta dello Sport smell of the eight potential riders who will start in Nice on Saturday 29 August.
