After his performance today I expect him to drop everybody on the way to Covadonga :cool:
Even though i predict him to win every mtf in any race he participates in :D
He does seem to do better when the mtf has a % under 10 and a distance around 10+ km.
So I give him great odds for another very good showing in the coming days :)

Gonna catch Valverde in gc :D

Impressive riding yet again by him. I particularly enjoyed when Contador and Jrod were off the front and he managed to come back to them, that was some good climbing. :)

This is really good progress from Aru..

He will become a serious nut to crack over the next few years...

This men is going to win all grand tours in the future.

Who's Majka? We've got Aru:)
Yeah, I'd take him over Majka any day of the week. Another superb ride by him. Way more impressed by his performance at Vuelta than his already great riding at the Giro.

This guy is good,really good and very aggressive as well.I'm curious if he can improve even more,he looks very close to Nibali climbing abilities.
 
Aru is really confirming his awesomeness this Vuelta. Being this good in his second GT proves a lot more than just getting the podium in the GT with the weakest gt of the year. He seems more consistent than in the Giro.

Aru at 24 looks very close to Nibali at 29 and light years ahead of Nibali at 24 :p

They'll just drop everyone else on every mountain stage while in the team car Martinelli flips a coin to determine who takes the win
In pure climbing talent my guess is that they will be evenly matched next year, But Nibali got a far superior tt + is in general a better cyclist, like long classic like stages + the abilities neccessary to attack downhill etc.

Even if Aru becomes a better climber next year, (likely or not) he wont beat Nibbles in the gc.

That said, Aru will make Pantani look like an amateur in a a couple of years :D

Aru also has some serious work ethic. getting coached by hardman Tiralongo + Slongo. Andy would have started crying and refused to leave his bed after the first day of training :p
Nibali looked more like Kelderman at 24. Aru is light years ahead. If he actually keeps improving, which is always a question, he will join the cycling greats.

He is what now, a kilo ligher than what he was in the giro? Martinelli said at that time that he has atleast 2 kilos to much on him, + this is his first year focusing on his core strenght. Add this to his very short span of actively focusing on cycling I think he has a great opportunity to improve, atleast things such as tting and his engine.

Mollema started cycling at age 16 or 17. Same story, but he was pretty much at his limit already in 2011 I think. Hasn't improved since then
