Exactly, he's probably the best climber in the list but that doesn't mean he'll be the best domestique. Me thinks Rogers.

Quintana - this guy is a phenom!
Alberto Contador=Legend!

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!

One can hope, but Taaramae is a rare solo artist.

I voted Porte because Quintana will be great but will get a lot of chances- whereas Porte will be absolutely crucial to Froome/Wiggins.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

: Confuso:
Quitana will be the best superdomestique, but Rogers will be the best overall domestique

They don't even ride the same GT's afaik. Caruso will ride the Tour as a leader, Basso is the captain in the Giro and Vuelta.

Tells a lot about the level of italian cycling right now.
I'm voting for Nairo, although he might be a team leader sooner than later.

Kreuziger, at least for the fact Contador is the best:p So in other words can say, Kreuziger will manage to lead him to yellow in Champs Elysées. :rolleyes: Thats the ultimate criterion:D
