Gigs_98 said:I genuinely didn't find his TT that suspicious. It was very good but the field was really weak and he pulled of pretty incredible TT's before. I'd argue yesterdays performance wasn't much more impressive than this from Paris Nice a couple years back.(Contador was always extremely good at uphill time trials and he beat him by 19 seconds)
However I absolutely agree this climbing performance is very hard to believe. I mean I guess the way the climb was raced benefited him a lot but still this is just so much better than anything else he has ever shown on a comparable climb. I don't know it just seems too good.
How do you know that the field was really weak?
Riders in recent excellent TT form like Asgreen and van Aert were not even close to challenging for the win.
