I'd prefer to describe his issues more in terms of his having lost his motivation and love for the sport. Of course his Vuelta success may change that or based on his shy, reserved nature, all the resulting attention and demands on his time may make him even more reserved and value his personal time even more. I'm quite happy for him and IMO he is even more deserving of his success than Froome considering the time and work he's put in supporting other riders in the past. The way he quietly rose to contend was emblamatic of his reserved personality and was ideal for him in that he limited the amount of pressure that he was subjected to. When he had to defend his lead he did so with determination. Bravo Cobo!!
