Sagan hunting down Cunego on that descent in Suisse in 2011 was incredible. Can definitely see the Falco comparisons!
best or worst?
because he had his bad days(that time trial was a curse) that doesn't mean he was terrible.far from it
hearing all the stories,i really think soler was unfortunately maybe the worst:( i was rewatching plateau de beille one of these days and he almost crashed in both alberto and rasmussen....uphill!
one of the best:
at least until he came back...
Rasmussen was actually a pretty good descender on his various long mountain raids. Soler didn't do so bad on the Galibier descent considering the firepower that was hunting him down. Other than that he did seems accident prone.
Lance is certainly worth a mention too. Aside from everything else it's no coincidence he never seemed to crash.
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton
