why not both as saviors of cycling?
back in the golden era, it was "the badger" & "el jardinerito" who carried France & Colombia to their best years in the sport....

I think Quintana is really in a different league uphill than even Pinot, we'll see it soon enough. Quintana's bad luck is that he's with Movistar/Valverde and still has to play second fiddle a lot.

Pinot's bad luck is that he is with FDJEux, who often overuse talents like that and ruin them
