More like a natural climber than anything else, I would say.

He's a typical mountain biker, very good in individual efforts over shorter distances and classics, but he lacks endurance and recovery in a GT. You can compare him with Kessiakoff, a very good time trialist with decent climbing. They both have good classics results, but in GT's they're done after a week or two.
