I guess your opinion on this matter is "general news" to you?

You mean like Daniel Martin in 2011? Every other rider in the top 10 of the WT achieved something like a GT podium, or WC podium except him and Rodriguez. The difference between those two being that Martin was totally invisible in the spring. Betancur could do something similar or maybe even better next year, no doubt about that.

Only-cycling channel is coming up. Commentary and gossip seem to be the thing.
