Omg Alberto is one of the most talented riders in the peloton, I simply won't believe froome can beat Alberto when they're both at their best. Froome his equal when it comes to climbing, this beats everything and is the most stupid thing I've ever heard

Quintana or Pinot, they are still young, Froome he is already 27 he won't improve much

Where did I say that?

Thomas De Gendt has shown potential for GC because of his podium in the Giro. What potential has Geraint Thomas shown in Roubaix?

Now go troll somewhere else, stick to your Rujano thread, so at least I won't have to read your nonsense. I'm sure you've already bashed a few Belgian riders there, but luckily I don't care enough for Rujano to actually look or make a post there.

Can't see anybody being able to dominate behind Contador for now, but somebody will step forward and claim the position.

The future is Sagan. Reckon he'll spend the next few years collecting points jerseys and classics to his palmares and with age his endurance will grow and weight drop. Be afraid...

His climbing is decent enough for the Tour. A sh!tty route like 2012 for example suits him perfectly.

When Contador retires the three GTs will be splitted between Peter Sagan(if he decides to become a stage race rider) Tejay van Garderen(Cadel Evans apprentice) and Quintana.

I know De Gendt came third but it's hard for me to take that Giro seriously considering that freaking Ryder Hesjedal won it.
