Astana's plans in 2020: Fuglsang al Giro and López al Tour

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the two heads of ranks of the Kazakh team will distribute goals in the next season. The Colombian will debut in the Tour.


The Astana team has already defined its objectives for the 2020 season. This is confirmed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, who explains the plans of the Kazakh squad for the big laps. The two team leaders, Jakob Fuglsang and Superman López, will divide their efforts: the Danish will go to the Giro and the Colombian will go to the Tour.

In this way, Miguel Ángel López would debut in a Grande Boucle that he still does not know, since his efforts so far have been focused on Giro (3rd in 2018) and Vuelta (3rd in 2018). This decision, according to the Italian newspaper, would be determined by the route presented this year by the gala round, full of mountains and with hardly any time trial, a profile very appropriate to the climbing characteristics of the Colombian.

Thus, Fuglsang would dispute the Giro as team leader four years after his last participation. The Danish, who last season traveled to the Tour as head of ranks and ended up retiring after a hard fall in the first week, will play the Italian round with maximum enthusiasm, since it is probably one of his last chances to conquer a three-week race . His absence in the 2020 Tour will allow him to confidently face his second major objective of the course: the Tokyo Olympics. In Rio 2016 he achieved the silver, so he will not lack motivation to fight for the highest box on the podium.
