Who cares about who's a pure climber or not? What's a pure climber? Someone who's bad at everything except climbing? Well, that's being called a pure climber isn't exactly a compliment then.

Nowadays you need to be good in both climbing and time trials if you want to win a GT. Besides, most good climbers are also good on hills.

If you want to talk about climbers than Contador has been the best since 2007.

still for rujano to shine everything must fall in place. especially the weather. he is so vulnerable wth his 48 kg
Yea after Alberto dropped him he realized he was stronger than Alberto. Makes sense

Lol, the semi-annual "pure climber" thread. Make use of the search function, eh?
