Adam Hansen to break Grand Tour streak after Giro d'Italia

Postby RonK » Tue May 08, 2018 2:10 pm

The Giro is the 20th and last consecutive grand tour for Adam Hansen. He will not ride the Tour de France this year.

Asked if he'll miss the Tour more than he expects, and perhaps find himself on the sofa watching a stage or two this summer on TV, Hansen was pretty adamant that he wouldn't.

"I doubt it. Besides, I don't own a television!"

That assumes Lotto suddenly do not have a hole in their TDF roster they need to fill.

The run was supposed to end at 18 last year when Hansen was not picked for the Vuelta.

A run of injuries and Hansen got called up, do you think he would refuse the chance to make it 21.

Seems it is his decision this time, not the team management.
