Bernal'2019 will crush them all.
Too early to tell. We know Bernal is good, but we don't know the impact of the weather on the performance of the losers. It seems the case for Almeida at least. It's perfectly possible that Yates and Almeida show a dominant performance during the next mountain stage when it's warm and sunny.
 
Welcome to GT racing Remco, think he may regret riding some warm up races.
He didnt...

And I think it was solid still. He was the one chasing from the other group. Only lost 10s. No big deal. His positioning wasnt that good in the group though. That is what might have cost him some seconds.

The question is longer climbs and multiple ones. How he will handle week 2 and 3 etc.
 
bernal looks very, very strong. if it stays this way, the high mountains will absolutely crown him.

remco did amazing when you consider where he is coming from. however, he did only okay in terms of actually competing for overall. depends on whether this is his limit in mountains or whether he will improve steadily throughout the giro. i am concerned it may be somewhere between the two (at best) and he may really show his limits in the high mountains.

Wait until the next dry mountain stage before you make predictions. Do you think MVDP would have crashed in Yorkshire in dry weather? Rain changes everything. Just ask Ulrich.
