This guy has got an incredible engine for such a big rider. He even has the quality to come back even stronger after a bad day.

Special rider!

The field is better, but 10 minutes? Bobby isn't the kind of rider who just cracks..

Anyways, point being that British fans such as Premier Andrew shouldn't feel so confident as it will be a walk in the park to get this jersey.
He lost over two and a half minutes to nibali on blockhaus alone, and without the crash, I think it's safe to assume this is where Yates would have finished roughly
Sup bro, Jungels is the ****, this is exactly what he did the last stages last year as well. Noticed how Yatesy struggled keeping up? He also has an ITT in the bank.

He was very strong today, he did a ton of work and still slaughtered everyone in the sprint. I think he'll take the white jersey by at least 30 seconds tomorrow.

Shame Yates had the crash before Blockhaus, but anyway, fair play to Jungels

I'm always entertained by the "mate's pull". Nibali got one from Cataldo on a previous stage, but Jungels really buried himself helping Tom.
I think he really fancied his chances to smoke the skinny climbers ahead in the sprint. If he's got strength left, there's absolutely no reason to just sit and do nothing, Dumoulin or no Dumoulin.
 
He's my favorite for the stage win tomorrow.

Seems to lack the top-end climbing abilities that Dumoulin showed, but showed remarkable recuperation and is actually better at the end.
Jungels might well become the next GT surprise in 1/2 years

Unlikely it'll come as a surprise when/if it happens. We're probably at the tipping point where it'd be a bigger surprise if he never becomes a GC rider. I say he clearly showed 3-weeks ability. On a frivolous note, splendid hair. Even right after the race. Alpecin needs to throw the bank at him. The new Hugo Koblet.
 
And some said he was wasted as a GC-rider ...
Bob is the real deal and I'm quite certain that in maybe two more years he'll be a genuine contender for a GT-win. His regeneration is really good like I stated before in this thread and he keeps on improving his climbing ability.

He has to go to another team. He has to drop 2 kilos and if he mantains his power, he will be a future gt contender
 
He rode really well yesterday which shows good recovery skills and he's still young so who knows, perhaps he can turn into a GT contender. I like the way he rides, always seeking opportunities it seems, even though he could be the one playing it defensively. That said, I'm still not sure if this GT has shown that he's a future GT contender. After all, he only beat the likes of Formolo, Polanc, Hirt, Monfort, Cataldo and Konrad.

yeah but the last 2 days he was on par if not better than Dumoulin, Mollema etc..
And last year he was 4th (with Majka) out of the GC guys on the last mountain stage, beating Chaves and Kruijswijk. He was also fantastic in the Andalo stage. He needs GTs to last four weeks, he'd put minutes into everybody! :D
 
But that's what I said before. He lacks the top end level in climbing, but makes up with recovery.

If he can heighten his top end level, he can be a top GT rider.
Do not forget Jungels is only 24. He has a lot of time to improve.

2 years ago nobody thought dumoulin would be a GT contender and look where he is now. Jungels has shown great promise the last 2 years and I do think he can make the jump
