He's still more likeable than quintana, wouldn't you agree fleur?
It was because of his cowardness in the previous stages.In Galibier,he rode like a champion.Jspear said:
Honestly, I am not sure if I see him as future GT winner. Climbing is very respectable but unless he develops it a lot (possibility considering his age) he will not be contending for the win. Will be interesting though to see how he and Dumoulin fare in future GTsGloin22 said:Honestly, out of all Giro he is by far the biggest surprise. With some luck I think Kruisjwik/Chaves could have podiumed, but for Jungels to finish top 6th? Dude, if he actually trains properly for GT's now he could become the new Luxembourg hope.
After Andy left I have big nostalagia for no Luxembourg stage racers, well Bob you are our saviour.
What do you mean by viable? It's gonna be a lone starter anyways, it's only about participating and trying to make it to the finish in an honorable fashion and nothing else. It will most likely be decided between Fränk Schleck and Ben GastauerRicco' said:I think he should nevertheless go to the Olympics. He could still do a decent time trial and let's face it, Luxembourg doesn't have another viable option for his place, even without Tour prep.
Focusing on his time trial.JRanton said:He rode a great Giro but has barely raced since. Does anyone know why?
