In His Own Words: Sport Director Matt Wilson Previews La Vuelta
header_logooricage Having introduced you to our Vuelta a España roster last week, we’re now ready to review with you what’s in store for our nine riders over their three weeks in Spain. We’ve clearly stated our intention of chasing stage wins, and we believe that our line-up offers us a variety of opportunities to achieve this goal.

Without a rider who can place anywhere high up on the overall, we’re in Spain purely for stage victories. Any team without an overall contender that leaves a Grand Tour with a stage win will consider it a race well done. We’re no exception. That said, I think we can win more than one stage. We’ve got some riders on exceptionally good form, and the team is really motivated this year.

I’d be happy to leave Spain with a stage win and ecstatic with anything beyond that. Where do I see our best chances? Read through my stage by stage analysis to learn where I expect us to contend for Grand Tour glory.
