Phew, I knew that I was going to get heat from saying that Nibali isn't that great of an all-rounder, but I sincerely think it.Carols said:All 3 GTs and a monument is one dimensional???KyoGrey said:I think that the talk should be between Kelly, Jalabert, Valverde and other historical all-rounders.
Nibali doesn't belong to the conversation. I mean he has a very good palmares (incredible for his talent base), but he is a 1-dimensional rider.
The notion that he is a good cobbled specialist from just 1 single day, the notion that he is a TT specialist just because he is not Escartín on the bike, and the notion that he is hilly classics capo just because he has had 3-4 good showings in 10 years, is a little bit delusional for me.
But I dont want to start a discussion about Nibali in a Valverde thread, so I'll stop here.
