How is Rodriguez the best climber in 2012? He got beat at the giro by second rate riders, at the vuelta an unfit Contador was at his level. Froome was best in 2012, no doubt.BlurryVII said:The Hitch said:You also arbitrarily decide who was the best rider each year and surprise surprise contador comes off as the best lol.
Contador and froome have faced eachother on equal terms once and froome won by 1st round k.o. "lack of motivation" really isn't a great excuse for losing by as much as contador did. And contador allegedly believed all along he was going to win.
I don't arbitrarily decide, in 2012 Rodriguez was ultimately the best climber, not Froome. And Contador was close to Purito. But keep being biased, and put Froome as best when he was just pulling Wiggins for the whole Tour.
Surely you must go really low, to take Contador 13' as example. You know very well that year isn't in any way indicative of his level, he is at the top since 2007, he was obviously gonna have one off season at some point.
At the same time, Froome only arrived, and was in his prime. Timing was just perfectly convenient for Froome to look as the better rider which he is not.
The round which was on equal terms was the Vuelta 14'. Same circumstances, both coming off an injury. But see what you wanna see and take Contador 13' and Contador coming off the Giro as your examples to show your bias.
Also worth noting that contador hasn't had a dominant gt like 2013 tdf
What the hell are you talking about?
