me neither, why focus on winning one whole race when you can win every individual stage = more winsIs impossible to compare. The rise of Wout to winning a HC mountain stage in a GT is certainly a much faster progression than Froomes. Wout's came in 2021 Tour de France beating Ellisonde & Pogacar iirc, but that's only his 2nd ever HC stage he's ever faced in his career, the first HC stage he finished half an hour down, but probably domestique anyway like much of Froomes early career. Froomes first came years after his first HC stage. Either way, I can't see Wout turning into a GC rider until he puts a hold on CX & the classics and actually focuses on the mental aspect of GC racing, which is totally different than just winning a mountain stage.
