Purito? You Dutch are the kings at over-hyping a rider. We have plenty of evidence of that.TheEnoculator said:This is a great day for Slagter. He has been overshadowed by other climbers like Gesink, Mollema, Kruijswijk and Kelderman in the team, because these four are supposedly more talented. But now Slagter will get recognition as a WT stage race contender.
He reminds me of Purito. Such powerful acceleration on short steep climbs.
Oh yes, I am sure a rider at the age of 23 who is starting out his pro career has plenty of doubters!Telmisartan new said:Impressive stuff from Slagter.The doubters know who you are.
It was nice to see Blanco do so well in it's first race since loss of sponsorship. Really stick it up Rabobank's ****.
