Cobbles? He hasnt shown a lot here yet. Yeah, he did fine in RVV Espoirs, but IMO thats not a particularly strong indicator for ability on the cobbles, more goes to show that he is one of the stronger riders in the u23 field (which of course is impressive considering his age)Samamba said:Costa can do everything. Climbing, TT, hills, cobbles... He's incredible.trevim said:To me it looked a lot like lack of legs but I only watched the final km's.liamito said:poor tactics by talansky
Anyway, I thought Costa was more of a time-trialist. Obviously climbing well in Utah just means he climbs well in Utah but it's highly impressive for such a young kid.
His performance tells something about the level of u23 racing these days btw. It's not like he's winning everything there.
