What is new, is that the 'climbers' are also outclimbed by the same TTers. In 2018 Froome, Roglic, Dumoulin and Thomas were the best climbers. So.. that's really on the climbers that they are so incapable of even riding away from the TT-ers on 'their' terrain.
In fact, I wouldn't call current day 'climbers' , like Quintana, Landa, etc even climbers anymore. Just less good GC men.
