In three years O Gran Camiño has broken the molds

It is difficult to think that so much talent will continue together next year in the UAE

What a snack for the UAE in its Tour, with the first three in the time trial, in another notch of the talent that comes together in the team.

In the image you have Brandon Mc Nulty, of whom Matxin told us that he has earned heaven for the dedication he puts every time he tells him to work for a colleague.

The issue is that the American, who is only 25 years old, has already won Valencia and looks spectacular for the UAE Tour.

I heard or read once that Brandon’s values ​​were scandalous, if he took them to the competition I don’t know what else could happen.

In any case, Mc Nulty led the UAE Tour time trial, accompanied by Jay Vine and Mikkel Bjerg with a reasonable advantage of 28 seconds over the great favorite Adam Yates, winner of the Tour of Oman a few days ago with his partner Finn Fisher-Black, winner stage and on the final podium.

Who’s going for the home race Mc Nulty or Adam?

This is the everyday life of the UAE on the calendar, this is how their talent springs up wherever they step, leaving a deep and overwhelming statistical mark.

A reality, blessed reality, for Matxin, who prefers to have many roosters rather than a few, says that things are simpler this way.

But I don’t know.

Except for Tadej Pogacar, unequivocal leader until one approaches him, things seem very unstable on this teamand when I say unstable, I mean that nobody has anything secure, on the contrary, everything is subject to rivals, but above all to internal competition.

It is good to fuel rivalry between colleagues, it motivates and improves, but here it is taken to the extreme.

In the Tour, for example, Almeida and Ayuso will be, if all goes well, in the starting eight Knowing that the boss is a big winner in the race, but what will happen without the competition puts them in a bind? a poorly controlled escape, a winning struggle, a mishap for its leader.

As I commented yesterday on the podcast of the friends of Biciescapa, there is so much talent that the UAE manages that we have the feeling that Juan Ayuso is old, and nothing could be further from the truth, he is 21 years old, but the thing is that as Antonio Morgado and Igor appear Arrieta and Del Toro’s explosion is added, that perception is established.

Then there are his signings, to complete first and second line of cyclist types with names like Pavel Sivakov and Niels Politt.

It’s brutal, like an unlimited capacity to hoard in their ranks everything good that moves.

I have to admit that I don’t like it, but it is what it is and cycling seems to be working to open more and more gaps…
