Well, in that case, long way is ahead of him. Alberto Contador Velasco is already in the Pantheon of greatest climbers in history, and he stands high in there, top 10 certainly, maybe even top 5ILovecycling said:Firstly, you reacted very quick as I have this signature for 2 years nowBlurryVII said:Oh my god, your signature is absolutely hilarious. How is Quintana the best climber since Pantani? Like what the ****? He still hasn't shown much yet and would get absolutely trashed by a top form Contador .ILovecycling said:So now, 1 stage and then staring on Aru's azz last week ...to conserve energy of course
This guy is SO overrated and overhyped, it's a joke.
Nvm...Of course its not my post but I very much agree with that (probably I wouldnt have hyped so much), because I just think he is the best pure climber since Pantani according to his age (look at Pantani's palmares, he was much older),there is nothing much more to say.
Contador and Armstrong (only 2 comparable) are not pure climbers, they won their GT's with climbing AND tt,as opposite Quintana is a climber like Pantani, thats why its more comparable.
I dont predict he will be as good GT rider as AC,but I predict he will be same or more likely better climber.
Barring injuries and crashes we will know if my theory is bs comes July.
btw: He could have won that Vuelta,if he was minute away from AC after that tt imho.
