IMHO it is indicative to some point. Bernal was superior to Remco on every single climb so far and I think it's quite unlikely to be different on longer ones. Actually Bernal's advantage should be even more exposed
In the longer mountaintop finish that we had until today Remco was able to follow Bernal so I don't think that Bernal will have that big advantage in the longer mountains unless Evenepoel suffers with the gradients or altitude.
 
Surprising how none of the other GC guys managed to do anything. I wonder if any of them will be able to step up and make turn it into a three-horse race. Someone like Simon Yates does not have a TT certificate to swing around so if he can't stay ahead of Evenepoel that is not a great sign.
 
Still don't know if I trust Bernal, or for that matter, Remco over three weeks. Obviously if Bernal is in 2019 form he's good, but returning from health/injury can be tricky.

Not even close to In The Bag
 
Ciccone is clearly the strongest of the domestiques.
I still think Evenepoel is a bit stronger overall. It's a shame Bernal has no real captains to deal with.

Easiest for the famous puncheur Bernal because Evenpoel is obviously better at him on long climbs and will smoke him!! :rolleyes:
Bernal is indeed a lot more punchy than Evenepoel. Not sure whoever had you believe otherwise.
 
Not sure why anyone expects Remco to be able to able to live with columbian, Tdf winning, climber in the high mountains.... Where's it coming from?

Is it just pure desire or is it actually based on anything?

After today and against my own best judgement my hopes for Bardet are growing
