"With Vincenzo leaving and no GC rider coming there's the possibility of me having a chance. I would like to try one more time and get the chance to try and get something out of it.”

Following a stand out season where he was third in Oman and Trentino, was 12th in the Giro and second in a stage as his teammate Nibali won the race and then second in the Olympics, Astana rider Jakob Fuglsang says he hopes to have one more shot at leading the team at the Tour de France.

 

The talented Dane was seventh overall in 2013 and is hoping the departure of Vincenzo Nibali allows him to lead a three week race for the first time since that season/ Fabio Aru is expected to try and win the 100th Giro after his poor Tour debut this season and Diego Rosa hasn’t led a three week race yet, the same for Miguel Angel Lopez.

 

"It's early to so say but there's the chance that I'll be able to go for GC," he told Cyclingnews at the 2017 Tour de France route presentation in Paris. "That's not determined yet and before the first team camps we don't really know who will do what. With Vincenzo leaving and no other GC rider coming to the team there's the possibility of me having a chance. I would like to try one more time and get the chance to try and get something out of it.”

 

“The Giro starts close to Fabio's home and this year's Tour was a bit of a disappointment for him so I think that he would like to go back to the Giro. Not that he wouldn't want to do to the Tour but I think he'll do the Giro."
