Let's wait till he rides Paris-Roubaix before we call him THE new Moser.

How is the profile for the long itt? He did a very good tt in pais vasco, but it was also hilly with some technical descents and he seems to be a great descender.
He seems to be in decent shape, so i believe that he can get a result in the itt

Not flat at all in the first half.
Then it gets easier.

Let's see how he goes in the next 4 stages, which should suit him well.

Did he have to work for Sagan today or not? Even so only losing 1:20 is a good accomplishment.

No. Sagan didn't even give it a go. He was dropped as soon as they started Verbier.

Italy has so much talent right now that it's almost unreal. And Moser is definitely among the most talented.

I chose him and am very glad. Will definitely be a GC contender in years to come. Even Basso thinks so.

Well, it is also some years ago since We have had a rider who has been able to win some major classics/monuments and also win a few gt's. (Not just like a gt rider winning fleche wallone once for instance)
But it will be very hard winning just a single classic in a few years with sagan there.

The real Moser couldn't win a GT as well. His Giro win was a farce that should have been won by Laurent Fignon.
