Scott SoCal said:The point is that AC has had much more success under JB than before JB. To say that JB had nothing to do with AC's continuing development is garbage.
Look what a decent director did this year with another gifted 24 year old (Schleck). My guess is AS will win some GT's maybe at an earlier age than AC. The next couple of years will tell the story.
oh boy, AC won his first Tour in 2007 when he was 24, when Rasmussen was expelled out of the race while wearing yellow with some 3 mins lead on AC. I am not going into discredit his first win. AC was then talented climber, accordingly he improved a lot on his ITT and evolving to be a true all rounder today. I am not sure how JB actually personally enhanced AC's TT (maybe lots of work on AC's part?)
Andy Schleck did Giro at 22 in 2007, placed second. The next year rode TDF first time as domestique for Sastre or Frank Schleck. He made a mistake suffering from hunger knock in an early stage and dropped in GC, later did well in mountain stages and placed 12th overall. ITT was also his weakness, losing close to 4 mins in the longer ITT. Andy came back 09 improving his ITT by trailing 1:40 (though shorter course).
I dont know based on this what comparison you want to make about AC and Schleck or attribute their success to their director sportifs, but I think you should have the facts right.
