Tour de France: Can Movistar’s new-look trident avoid past shambles?

Tour de France: Can Movistar’s new-look trident avoid past shambles?



Which Movistar will turn up at the Tour de France? The slick, cohesive unit that has a long history of challenging for, and winning, Grand Tour titles? Or the rather shambolic outfit on display in The Least Expected Day, the documentary of the Spanish team that is currently into its second season on Netflix?

The documentary is captivatingly watchable because it presents both the very good and, to the team’s credit, the very bad of Movistar’s 2020 season. On the one hand, there’s a wonderful drone-shot segment that highlights the team’s organisation and togetherness, the camera swooping over a pace line of riders moving very swiftly and in perfect harmony.
