Lol, the Vuelta. Up there with Aitor Gonzalez. Before that year Cobo never got close to a win in a GT anyway. I fancy Nibali's chances of future success much higher.

Evans just raced a GT while not at 100% and you probly saw how he went.
Samuel Sanchez... we will be able to discuss upon it when he'll finally manage to properly race a GT from the start to the end, as for now there's no evidence at all he's so strong as you seem to think.

And Cobo I hope you're just trolling lol. What did he ever do other than that Vuelta (and btw Nibali won a Vuelta too... why doesn't that matter, if it does for Cobo?)

cobo's vuelta win was way more imporessive against a stronger field.

it's better not comment about cobo if you don't know his story well. that's why I said IF he's healthy(mentally)

evans was far from 100% this year. not 100% to me means close to it as well.

I don't rate shape as in 99% but not in 100% shape means to me can be close to top form but not real top form. that's what mine was based on. andy scheck out of shape can't even finish a regular stage race so I thought that was obvious.

So how did you measure Evans' shape level this year? Didn't seem so far from 100% to me.
Did the Giro 2010 count too? How in shape was Evans then?

Cobo will never do as well as when he won the Vuelta, that was the highest point of his career.

Also Nibali beats Purito, with both in form Nibali is just as strong in the mountains and stronger in the TT.
