I don't know why I follow Zubeldia's results each day. He never attacks. He's hardly ever noticed. One or two of his teammates are always picked to finish higher. Despite all that, the guy is consistent and many times ends up the highest on GC on his teams - Four top tens in the TDF and, most likely, a fifth top ten this year to go with two top tens in the Vuelta. And those top tens aren't built on accumulating time gaps in breakaways, they're built upon riding with the best. Is being consistently good in the Tour, but never winning, worthy of note?
