I really love watching Yates - either one - climb. Ineos could take top 3 spots. Thomas riding with intent this year, love to see that.

Kudos to Valverde and Chaves.

Boo to Kuss. He should have been able to stick with Yates.
Apart from thumping very good riders in the Dauphine once and I suppose Loze, this is actually circa where Kuss can be expected in that field.

Or put it differently, I still think he is 1 tier down from Yates as climber.
 
Bala nicely preparing his 41st birthday, Chaves dropping riders like it's 2016, Crushweak became a better TTer than climber, not steep enough for Steep Kuss, Quintana is not the naironman he used to be and Yates Adam rides for Sky so obviously he is better than before and all the rest.
To me Quintana is fine for a rider with double surgery and no training during winter!
 
My understanding is Chaves is no certainty to ride a GT in 2021 - He will be having a crack at the Ardennes and the Italian Fall races - He may end up riding the Giro, seeing that Zeits was injured in Coppi Bartali and will miss two months, and therefore the Giro - I must stress that Chaves will not ride for GC at any GT.

You said this twice in this forum. Do you have a source of this?
Chaves keeps saying different things!
