Pidders only has 'haters' because he gets put in conversations with all-time greats, pretty silly if you ask me.
What confuses me is that I have honestly never seen him in the same conversations as van der poel, van aert, pogacar, remco etc. Not on the road at least. Does it happen more in CX? Even the British media (not that much re cycling exists)/Kirby never really compare Pidcock with the very best.

Yeah, the 'overrated' thing is very artificially constructed, I think. Almost everything I've read about him has him rated pretty fairly, as a contender for best of the rest in hilly classics behind the aliens, and as someone with potential but no real results in stage races.
