I can't get over how large his thighs are and how thin is waist is. Unreal. Looks like the legs of Chris Hoy.

His height maybe be one of the reasons why his thighs seem so big. I think if he were like 10-20cm longer he would look different.
No. Quintana's the same height and has thinner legs.

It's all about genetics. Ullrich also had monster legs. Xerdan Shaqiri also has monster calves.
 
The way he dropped the entire group he was riding with to bridge to Campenaerts at the end gave me flashbacks of his attack from the bottom of the Mur de Huy in 2014 F-W.

Still no idea what to expect from him in Suisse. His form at least seems really good.

Pantani also had big upper legs for a guy of his size. Especially considering his tiny legs.

Rasmussen on the other hand had tiny little legs. Like a sexy blonde girl haha. Seriously he probably doesn't know himself why he hides his muscles. But he was incredible strong, just because of his build.

Cunego was build just like Betancur. Even in his prime.

I love how the feltet.dk preview has Betancur as the number one favourite for the Tour de Suisse. :D
Lol, seriously. What the.. Carlito hype?!

Surprised that you read that, but I guess its the best alternative?
Alternative to what? I think their previews are great.
Alternative to when CQ closed (altho its basically the same, just Danish). Yes, he does a pretty amazing job honestly. Just fortunate that I don't have to read Norwegian ;)

Written Norwegian is basically Danish, so I'm perfectly fine reading feltet.dk. :)

Have to admit they're going a bit over board when they're talking about Movistar having a three-pronged approach at the Tour de France, though...

Decent performance today in the TT.
I wouldnt say it was a decent performance, i think it was a really good performance. 3 years ago the major weakness of Betancur it was the TT, now losing only 21s with Dumoulin (Despite it was 6k) and beat Pantano the Colombian TT champion, i think is great.

- Says he has more desire than ever
- Says - once again - that he wants to go to the Tour to help Nairo. The team however wants to go all the way in Vuelta with Valverde and it looks like Movistar view Betancur as a key piece to help him out. Says he would be honoured to help Piti.
- Also says - once again - that he wasn't aware of the importance of weight (lol)
- His numbers in the tests he did are outstanding and have only been reached by very few riders
- His goal for Switzerland is to measure himself with the rest of the field, says he wants to take it step by step
- He loves Valverde. His dedication, his approach, his professionalism. Wants to follow his lead, an example worth following.
