I hope he does not win. not that I don´t like him as an athlete. but twitter and the forum would become totally unbearable every time he appears. if you thought the staring at stems jokes and bad style accusation towards froome were a bit tiring, well, just hope Moscon doesnt win the Worlds.
:D

Besides Moscon coming across as a despicable person, it would be a shame to see the rainbow jersey as another slave in the Sky mountain train.

Really? Why on earth would you get all fired up because he won some relatively insignificant end of season races even if you don't like the guy?

Make me laugh seeing how people keep talking of Moscon as if he was a serial killer or a war criminal.

What more does he need to do to deserve being talked about as if he isn't a nice person, since we're not there already?

The guy doesn't race for months, comes back and wins 2 out of the 3 races he participates in. Pretty impressive. Also considering that he has shown to be a better climber than Pozzovivo and Bardet on Monte Serra.

Courtesy @ammattipyoraily: Monte Serra (last 6.50 km, 7.91 %, 514 m), Moscon, Bardet, Pozzovivo, 17 min 46 sec, 21.95 Kph, VAM 1736 m/h, 6.22 W/kg.

There are about 20 others but undoubtedly Moscon is one of the main candidates for the win.

How can Pozzovivo have same time, he caught them on the descent?

I just don't get why that should make anyone mad. No one's ever denied the guy's talent. I could see people being upset if won World's but him winning a couple of small races shouldn't upset anyone.

Is that a “great performance”? I mean clearly he’s in form and he was there to contest the finish, but where would we expect him to finish on that situation with a merely good performance or a mediocre one? It’s not like he was beating a field of top uphill sprinters. Third there seems about par for the course for an in form Moscon.

I understand Cassani wants him to be at his best for the RR, but with his form he could've even snatched a podium today. Meh decision.

It can't possibly be more annoying than Poels winning because someone else has a mechanical like LBL 2016

Anyone else think Moscon found another level to his performances since Tour? The fact he almost made it with the trio is frankly ridiculous.

Will be super interesting what he does in classics next year, this year he was often close to making final groups but usually missed out.

The problem in Innsbruck he didn't have anyone to punch badly enough or he could've stayed with Piti & co.
He's gonna win big though. And he's gonna win big soon.
