Or Horner's comments that him, Contador, and Schleck were the only better climbers then him. Oh how I miss Alberto and Andy.

Hypothetical Peak Contador is the destroyer of worlds.

And I'm unable to understand a word :( But he looks Good and Happy!

Lordy if there was ever a Berto stage, it would be today. Go from the flag and never look back! He is Sorely Missed!

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!

"Contador climbed Col de Portet in 56:00 today. VAM 1500 m/h. Not bad. That's going to be faster than climbing times of 120 TDF riders. #TDF2018"

Just in time to snatch some strava KOMs before the peloton comes by :D

If Contador did the climb in 56 minutes, that's about 5.2W/kg. Quintana was at about 5.85 W/kg, and there were twenty riders within six minutes of him. Though a few started the climb ahead of Quintana, most were in the MJ group.

Without being disrespectful, is this not surprising seeing he didn't have another 16 days and 2 previous mountains in his legs? He is quite fresh and seemed to glide up that climb with Flecha breathing like me on the flat! :D

How much training he's done is the more interesting question. It's the 3rd week yes, but climbing performances in the 3rd week can often be some of the best.
