I'm not saying Pinot is a bad rider. He's good. But he didn't win a GT. Not many riders do. Sure, maybe he could have won a GT if many things that happened didn't happen.I'd also like to add that Pinot would have had a very good shot at winning the 2019 Tour had he not run into an injury at the worst possible time, so even if Vingegaard's 2021 is Pinot's 2014, that doesn't mean he can't win a GT. And Vingegaard beat Carapaz instead of losing to a Peraud type, quite a big difference.
Vingegaard is good, too. But IMHO finishing second while never being anywhere close to first the entire race isn't an indication of likely winning a GT in the future.
