Nairo tried multiple times in stages 12, 14, and 17 before finally being successful in stages 19 and 20. The difference is that Simon has been able to easily get away the few times he's attacked because he's far stronger than the people he's attacking which mostly hasn't been the case for Nairo as he almost always has gone up against Froome in his prime and his Tour train. I agree that Nairo hasn't been as aggressive in the last couple of years but we've also seen him getting dropped a bunch. It's not a video game, guys can only do what their legs let them do. It's easy to drop guys when you're the strongest rider in the race. You stated that Simon has been been more attacking this Giro than Nairo ever has been and that's just not a true statement as there are multiple instances of Nairo attacking more in a GT.Blanco said:Tour 2015 :surprised: You've got to be kidding! He lost it precisely because he didn't want to put everything on the line. He failed to do something similar to what Yates did on stage 15. Last time Nairo Quintana was an aggressive rider is Tour 2013. After that, he is becoming more and more conservative. He's quite often strongest rider in the mountains, but also quite often fails to materialize that.
