I am hoping there will be a battle royale between Pinot and Quintana rather than the likes of TJVG and Talansky.

Vino twins are two young, but they will dominate in the 20s:D

Have to see more of him to form an opinion. u 23s could be misleading some times. Could become a GC contender or a TT guy, can't say for now.

Pelvis injuries can be problematic for cyclists (or so I have heard anyway). Look at Beloki, he was never the same rider after his injury.

To be honest I think we will see that level again as 27-32 years old is often cited as the prime years for a cyclist. Hope so too, AS and Contador battles are a joy to watch.

I thought Beloki's was femur fracture, that being the most serious of those sustained in 2003.
