Tour de France – Bahrain with Haig but without Padun

Jack Haig, Pello Bilbao and Wout Poels will be at the start of the Tour de France on June 26 with the Bahrain team. Mark Padun was not selected, however, nor the Spaniard Mikel Landa, who has not raced since his fall from the Giro. “Obviously, after the Dauphiné, there was the temptation to take Mark Padun on the Tour. Ditto for Gino Mäder after his victories at the Giro and the Tour de Suisse. However, they are young talents in the team with other goals this season, and the team has a responsibility to look at a longer term plan for these riders. “, explained performance director Roger Hammond.

Sporting director Rolf Aldag announced a behavior “aggressive” race: “Our team is ready to take on every stage as if it were a one-day race.” Bilbao (31), who has already raced the Giro this season, took 16th place in the Tour last year. Haig (27) was fifth in the last Dauphiné and Poels (33) sixth in the Vuelta twice.

The team will also field the Italian sprinter Sonny Colbrelli and the Slovenian Matej Mohoric, already stage winner in the Giro and the Vuelta. Mohoric, whose favorite downhill position (sitting on the seat tube) is now banned, was very prominent in May at the Giro d’Italia until his spectacular crash and retirement in the 9th stage.

The Bahrain team at the Tour de France:

Pello Bilbao (ESP), Sonny Colbrelli (ITA), Jack Haig (AUS), Marco Haller (AUT), Matej Mohoric (SLO), Wout Poels (NED), Dylan Teuns (BEL), Fred Wright (GBR)
