I guess the big question for next season will be if Tylers twin will attack him or work with him. Sibling rivalries can be very strong ya know

Jeebus. Apparently Valverde doesn't know what an "off season" is.

Neither does Cunego: On Christmas Eve, "Il Piccolo Principe" rode for five and a half hours (160 km), near Lago di Garda; on Christmas Day, he spent one hour in the saddle; and on Santo Stefano, December 26, he rode for two and a half hours.

Regarding Christmas day, Cunego said, "The temperature was beautiful and it would have been a shame to miss an occasion like that."

Basso's 'base training': "Four hours on Christmas Eve day and on Santo Stefano, when I went to Campo del Fiori, the longest climb I do in this time of the year." From Varese, Campo dei Fiori is a 13.6 kilometre climb that averages 6.1% gradient and rises 832 metres.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled thread.
