Since this would get lost between the chaos that is the stage thread: big props to this guy. He now has a stage on Stelvio and Ventoux. For not being a true climber, that's impressive!

Brilliant win, saves the Tour for Lotto. Thanks, didn't expect this.
A bit sad that nobody cares about his win right now.

I am always amazed at how much he better he can be when he really sets his mind on something.

And a podium at the Giro. Many climbers who focus their career on finishing in the top ten in a GT have never achieved that, like Gesink, VDB2, Mollema (this might be his year though), Zubeldia, Tejay van Garderen, Kruijswijk, etc.

Shame that an amazing win for Thomas de Gendt is so overshadowed. Great win, was really rooting for him in that final sprint. Seems well on his way to the combativity award + KoM, as well as having a Tour stage in the bags. Combativity depends on the amount of punches Froome plans to give though.
