well, some of these guys better look at the result today and make an alliance somehow. Must be others at 25s+. Let Mollema etc sit in the Movistar train meanwhile.

Yes, he says he isn't. But if you look at him, and look at the climbs/efforts he's best at, he's better at shorter climbs and shorter time trials. He has never even made the top-10 in a long TT.

He doesn't get better as the effort lengthens.

His worst climbing performances are usually also on the longest climbs (FE tourmalet, madeleine)

IIRC he did quite well on Mende in '10.
