he has all the characteristics for doing great gc though. but he's not a winner, totally different from guys like henao or duarte, who are winners. they have a greater future.

that silver medal is a clear testament to his physical talent and mental lack of talent/winner mentality

You won't be saying that when he becomes World Champion this year.

I rewatched the race recently and the way he was caught napping by Vino was rather hilarious.

Interview with Rigoberto ahead of the giro.

Seems fully committed to supporting Wiggins.

On another note, is he the landlord for Henao and Quintana, and that it is easy getting the rent of Sergio but hard of Nairo?

Sounds like he is expecting something big from Colombians in Worlds.
