Why are you so desperate to talk down Alberto?
You don't just throw a cyclist like Alberto out of the window like a piece of junk. This is the man who was the best stage racer in the world for 5 years. You don't treat him like that.
Riis will be out of cycling soon enough anyway.
I mean, there are plenty of teams with no really good stage racer. Not every team can have Wiggins Uran Henao Froome and Porte in one team. As Alberto showed last year he can still win stage races. And I am sure he would have won a stage race this year if he had targetted different races. No Alberto can't pick which race he wants to win anymore but realistically how many cyclists can do that?! Even Froome lost T-A.
