I don't disagree much with this either. Still there's a difference between being a generational talent and having been worthy of getting a WT contract at JV in 2019, which was what the discussion was originally about.For my closing statement i will just point out, that when Ilmaestro starts liking your posts, things aren't looking too good.
Seriously though, i think Foss might be better served putting on more weight and start eyeballing TT's, classics or breakaways than trying to lose weight (iirc he already lost a lot of that weight 2 years ago, and it has not improved his general level) with GC in mind. I also doubt Jumbo is going to sign a 23 year old, who will only start showing his pedigree 4 years after their contract ends. That's the level of commitment you expect with a generational talent, which he is clearly not. Also, if all that was really true, and he really believed what he said back then, then there is no need for him to start expecting/claiming a more prominent role as a GC leader at this point, as by his own admission, he's still 4 years shy of his best level.
He does have his own thread, although someone decided to give it a pretty stupid titleAnd I also don't really feel the need to further make this into more of a Foss thread than a Roglic thread!
He won the Tour de l'Avenir in 2019, having finished 9th the year before. It wasn't the strongest edition of the race, and he was also older than many of the other rider, but these days a l'Avenir win seems to be a stepping stone to greatness, so it shouldn't be discounted. Last year he also...
