Emanuel Buch­mann (Ger)

Cycling Weekly - - STARS -

Age: 27 2019 Tour de France: 4th over­all Strengths: Be­ing con­sis­tent on the climbs, on the flat and against the clock is key for any gen­eral clas­si­fi­ca­tion hope­ful and Buch­mann has all three at his dis­posal.

Weak­ness: How he’ll cope with sole lead­er­ship on the big stage is untested.

CW say: If Buch­mann can re­cover from his Dauphiné crash and in­spire his team-mates to com­mit to his goal, a podium place is pos­si­ble.
