Happy for him after suffering like a dog on the Belles Filles stage. Really deserved it.

Not sure if he has a thread yet, sorry if he does. Super talented rider, fast enough to top ten a sprint in MSR and Worlds this year, good enough climber to finish 7th in hard Lombardia. Has also finished just outside top 20 in Liege and Flanders (in 2014 Flanders he finished with Stybar, Degenkolb and Sagan).

Loves the long distances, with 1 of his 7 wins coming in a race under 100 miles/160km. Here are his best results in some one-day races:

Worlds-6
MSR-9
Flanders-23
Liege-20
Lombardy-7
E3-6
San Sebastian-1
Amstel-6
FW-16

Also not afraid to risk it in an attack like he showed in PN, San Sebastian and TDF. How well can this guy do?

I'd say his biggest strenght is his race instincts. He's shown on more than one occasion that he knows just when to attack.
