I think the consistency has come from being a bit lighter. Like he said before the Tour he lost 5 kilos! While I don't think it is that drastic cause he'd likely have died if he had lost 5kg. He might have put on a bit of weight after the Vuelta to help with speed,who knows.Last year in the Vuelta, he seemed more explosive and wasnt going all that well in the high mountains (in Tour also). This year is a different story, extremely consistent in the high mountains, but not with the same killer instinct. He will need to find that quickly, but not matter what, Im pretty sure he will be up there. Just cant see him beat Sagan or Mathieu mano a mano on this course, so he will have to be good tactically and a bit lucky to pull this off.
