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.

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
