Team Sky Startlist

Team Sky tour of guangxi start list

1. Mikel Landa (Spain)

For this 27-year-old Spanish cyclist, 2017 is a bittersweet season. He is the King of Mountains at 2017 Giro d'Italia, winner of the Vuelta a Burgos at his hometown. Two years ago, he came to Team sky hoping to get better result of the grand tours. As the co-leader of 2017 Giro d'Italia, he fell out due to the peloton crash. And for 2017 Tour de France Landa ultimately placed fourth behind Froome, Rigoberto Urán and Bardet, finishing just 1 second behind Bardet in third. Landa has made great contribution to Froome's consecutive winning of Tour de France. But no breakthrough for this personal result. On 15 August 2017, it was announced that Landa had signed with Movistar Team for a two-year contract, commencing 2018.

In all the cyclists of Tour of Guangxi, Lamda is a great rival in the climbing. Could Landa show his advantage at the debut of Tour of Guangxi?

2. Wouter Poels (Netherlands)

30-year-old Poels was Froome's chief lieutenant for his 2017 Vuelta a Espa?a victory. At the same time, Poels ranked 6th in GC. Poels shows that he is in his great condition this year.

Not surprisingly, Poels will be full of support for Landa to get the Tour of Guangxi champion. But the Team Sky may also use the strategy of sharing leadership with Mikel Landa. As mentioned earlier, the first Tour of Guangxi track is a comprehensive track, more suitable for classic riders. In 2016, Poels won the Liège - Bastogne - Liège, which is the first victory of the five classic racing since the foundation of Team Sky. The current state of the Poels is good. He also has the ability to win the first Tour of Guangxi champion.
