Not particularly impressed with Landa. On the other hand, much more impressed with Roson getting a top 10 GC.

When is Rohan Dennis supposed to show his GC climbing legs? It's been 1 year since he showed top20 climbing back in Tirreno '17. Kinda short for someone who's supposed to be leading a GT 2 months from now....

Anyway, probably the best TT rider in the world (Dumoulin close), so who cares for climbing?

Maybe you are too critical. As Netserk pointed, without TTT he would be 4th - but main problem was his ITT, he lost ca 50 sec to Kwiato.
Without ITT would be 1st.

It's not so much the TTT, they totally screwed that up, but definitely the ITT. You can't loose that much time in an ITT and be a top GC rider. Unfortunately Purito proved that not being a good TTer is a great way to loose races. Also the reason that Valverde choose to work on his TTing while serving his doping ban.
