Ineos sports director about bale year: “Very welcome that Ganna wins 2 Giro stages” | Giro

“We really fall from one thing to another,” said Servais Knaven. “It’s not always under control because it was really a year full of bad luck. We can’t learn anything from this because we didn’t do anything wrong. It sucks.”

For example, very recently there was the assignment of Thomas in the Giro. “He was really ready. He already took a minute on the competition in the time trial and it looked very good, but suddenly everything changes. He drives over a drinking bottle and sometimes the cap jumps off and nothing happens. Not now. . “

Is Filippo Ganna saving Ineos’ season? “That might be a bit exaggerated, but the fact that he now wins two stages in the Giro is very welcome. Of course. But we also see Kwiatkowski participate well in the Brabant Arrow, so that is also a boost.”

“We want to move forward. There are certainly not only bad days. There are also good ones in between. We are really still motivated for the classics and the Vuelta. The riders can also all turn the switch. We are now setting other goals and that offers also opportunities for other boys. And they seize them. “

“Kwiatkowski is very good, but he still had some difficulty with the transition to the cobbled climbs. That will be better now and hopefully he can compete for the podium in Gent-Wevelgem and the Tour of Flanders. The Vuelta? That is still a long way off. I think we will mainly aim for Carapaz. “
