His ears are way too normal to go Tommeke.

Brian Holm said Mas was the one with the fastest times on the ascents in Mallorca and said he potentially is a TdF-winner. Wasn't surprised by how he was performing.

Lets see how he fares today, I think really well. I will keep posting insights from Holm here on Mas if that should have any interest.

I am not surprised either. These words doesn't mean much. For the sake of the future it's surely better to say he is talented from early in his career, than otherwise or nothing. Look at Froome and you wil understand.
And it's good for rider psychic too, suportive and makes no pressure.

I feel it's exactly the kind of result that tells me absolutely nothing.

This guy will be very good, I don't know exactly how much time will he probably lose tomorrow, since our stats from ITT results from him are very limited.

Maybe he can stick to the top-20 and improve from the result on his first WT race in Australia.

If he can control races like he did yesterday, he will certainly find himself in demand as a support rider for the rest of the year. Martin and Alaphillipe do not often have access to the kind of assistance he gave De La Cruz. I'm not sure that he will get too much opportunity to ride for himself until next year at the earliest though, given that those two and/or De La Cruz who has really stepped up this year will likely be on the roster for any hilly or climbers race.

Very good TT indeed!

7th place on the climbing section and 14th final overall, not a bad WT season start for this young guy.

He has a very pleasant climbing style, he looks smooth. I hope he develops as many us of hopes so he keeps the Spanish tradition going...

Edit: I hope his PCS picture gets updated tho.

Landa immune to my prophecies it seems. Still, we have a great climber on our hands.

Hyping this before Calar Alto. :cool:
I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Twice the most combative rider in his very first GT in his first season as a pro is not a bad start, I guess. :)
