Dennis been working on his climbing too much
Yes, he made a good go of it for this stage race, but trying to make it work for 3 weeks would be even more of a daunting task.Rollthedice said:Apart from the curious case of Tom Dumoulin, that fine balance between TT smasher and world class climber can only be achieved under Sky management. Rohan is quite far.
I agree and yet it feels weird to write that about a team that has Swift, Elissonde and Castroviejo as main climbing help on a stage with 3 HC climbsBroccolidwarf said:
Are you suggesting that Bernal should have a weak team here, on paper, or that the competition is just weak?roundabout said:
Makes me think what would've been if Froome hasn't dropped out of contention...luckyboy said:Bernal-Thomas dynamic at the Tour should be interesting anyway. Can imagine a Froome-Wiggins situation play out unless there are other guys stronger than Thomas... Bernal is clearly the best climber there though.
Both. The 3 mentioned produced a bigger selection than I expected on Sankt Gotthard and I really don't see where a sustained attack on Bernal will come from tomorrow.Cance > TheRest said:Are you suggesting that Bernal should have a weak team here, on paper, or that the competition is just weak?roundabout said:

Yes, low sixties for Bernal.roundabout said:Soler - team given weight 68 kg
Bernal - no weight on the team site, but probably low 60's at a glance (I am the same height as him so it should be a relatively reasonable guess)
