Among the most reliable domestiques in the peloton, Vasil Kiryienka will again be a Sky rider next year. The Belarusian was one of the riders that in 2013 we have seen more often on the front of the peloton to pull for their captain, and is the kind of athlete that any leader would want to have in the squad with regards to his ability to bite the bullet and give 100%.

 

Although he was devoted full time to Chris Froome’s cause, the mighty Belarusian managed to take personal glory in the stage to Peña Cabarga in the Vuelta a España, in which he managed to raise his arms to the sky after a solo ride of over 40 km. The only drawback of the season was the Tour de France, as he had to abandon having gone out of time in the ninth stage.

 

"The first season with Team Sky went well - said the ex Movistar rider - I am satisfied with my performance. Sometimes, when you try to reach the best condition, all is not the right way. In the Tour I finished out of time, but the team has supported me and I managed to find the condition I needed at the Vuelta. It was a good idea to go to Spain as I finished a great season there. "

 

In 2014 we should get used to seeing him in front of the group to take the wind in his face to save his leader: "It's my job, I have a strong respect for the sport and a great sense of responsibility. There is a team and there is a designated leader, I work for that person. This pushes me to always give 100% when I have to pull for many miles. "

 

An indispensable man for Froome, the 32 year-old will match more or less the schedule of his captain: "I do not think there is much to change compared to last year. Just because a race has gone bad does not mean you have to change everything. I feel we are on the right track, and I want to continue to learn and improve."
