That would be great to see, I've certainly enjoyed how he has ridden this year. I'm not a big fan of his, but I could grow to like him if he continues to ride like he has been. He's ridden with a lot more panache and seems to be attacking more instead of waiting for the sprint. And he's currently at a all time high in CQ points, so this kind of riding as opposed to his usual style of waiting for the sprint seems to work well for him.
I was thinking a few days ago with Quintana likely targeting the Tour next year, he might change things up and go for Giro-Vuelta. He did say he was considering the Giro early this year. That would be pretty cool to see IMO.
