No Tom Pidcock in the Giro: ‘The Grand Tour can do more wrong than good for the rider’ | gyro

In the original program of Tom Bidcock The Giro was announced, but after the changing spring, the employer changed course. It looks like Bidcock is heading into the Tour de France and skipping the Giro.

“As a former Baby Giro winner, I would have liked to see him in action here,” Renaat Schotte is a bit disappointed. “But if you’re not ready, don’t start.”

“The Grand Tour gives a lot of weight to the participant and can do more wrong than good for the rider,” José De Cauwer analyzes.

“Last year we got a clear picture of this with Remco Evenepoel, who wasn’t ready for such an adventure. Then you can’t go forward as a rider, but backwards.”

“It’s important – also for Matthew van der Poel, for example – to complete a big run if you make it to the end healthy and well. You can be tired, but you’re not broken.”

“In this team you also have the luxury to say: Would it be wise? Win a stage and go home lean? Then it would be wise to change the programme.”

You can also listen to podcasts in the Sporza app, tapping on “podcasts” at the top of the navigation.
