The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

I wanted to say Samu but think he has missed his shot.

It doesn't really matter what country you're from (although being Anglophone does help), the hype is more important. Kreuziger was much hyped, he just hasn't improved since then. If anything, he's gotten worse, like his peer Gesink.

You know it's not real.
Your Garmin guys are getting killed.

Once in these guys´ careers, it can be "these" three weeks, like it was "this" day for Iglinskiy in LBL...

Also, to compare Kreuziger and Gesink with Evans is unfair to Evans. Come on.
Hesjedal is a better example, but then again he lost so much time in the 2011 TDF that it was impossible to gauge his true level back then. Gesink OTOH gets dropped by Valverde's domestiques. Still does. He's just not the same type of rider anymore. Kreuziger never had it to begin with and seems to have regressed also... as a GT rider that is. He'd be better off focusing on races like LBL and short stage races, IMO
airstream wrote:The Vuelta is not a sentence. He was out off top form. Besides we know how long Gesink always reaches his best conditions, how instantly he loses them due to any crash and how painfully long he recovers. I won't be surprised if he wins the Giro. Though, with a future Sir, it is a difficult task...
