Interesting to see the quantification of the faith in youngsters Lopez, Gaviria and especially Moscon compared to more proven riders like Sagan and Nibali. Risk-takers I salute you.

I consider Froome, Sagan and Kristoff are the only riders here that are underpaid based on their previous performance (which obviously is no guarantee for the future performance), but we'll see what the future has in store for them.

To pay over the current odds for one is risky. For two could be termed madness. But hey I’ve had 3 seasons of Froome so wanted a co plate change from that seasonal back-weighted pattern.

Lopez and Moscon were overpaid, Froome very much underpaid.

Kristoff could be a rider who declines quicker than expected. I think Gaviria outscores him over the next three seasons combined.

How's that even a competition?

Froome doesn’t have 5e dominance he once had, yes I ‘now that sounds silly coming off the back of a GT double, but he doesn’t win stages like he used to. It’s now more about the team and racecraft for him.

IMO he’s peaked and is on the downhill now. Likewise Kristoff Who was poor in the Spring Classics last year.

Gaviria is already amongst the very best and I just have a feeling this is López breakout year with at least a GT podium as well as a couple of other race wins. Both of them are now the main men at their teams.

Keeps fingers crossed he doesn’t fall off his bike again.

That 1,070 is looking rather expensive for Froome right now.

I think there´s still a strong possibility for him to do the Tour, Vuelta and WC. We'll see...

He’ll have to prove that his body can produce that much salbutamol in his urine whilst taking a dose within the guidelines in order to avoid a ban. That’ll take time obviously.

Even the time wont probably help if they're coming out with the similar results Ulissi had when he tried to overturn his ban by using same reason.
