Wow, what a complete rider he is proving to be..

5th Tirreno Adriatico. Proving to be a great climber for first time really. Epic Ronde ride proving he's very versatile.

And now finishing 5th in Amstel, ahead of many much more fancied names.

One of riders of the spring so far, if not the one in terms of coming of age.

He was also second in Algarve Gc, second there in a TT losing only to Martin. He is turning to be on of the most complete riders

Yep, we knew he had great TT. And we knew he was okay punchy/climber as he shown last year at Tour de Pologne.

But what's he's doing this year, especially the Tirreno and this performance, I didn't think he had it in him at all, at least at this step in his career. Amazing really.

It was Meersman in 5th today in the Amstel not Kwiatkowski or am I wrong? Anyway he is a big talent.
It was Kwiatkowski ;) Confirmed by OPQS and the photos of finish.
 
@Sucotash thanks for the video.

I'm excited to see how he will do at Liege, he says himself that he likes the route and that he thinks it suits him very well.

Apart from that, which grand tour will he ride? I suppose he won't ride ride the tour when Tour of Poland takes place in the same time. He could have a free role at Giro or Vuelta and see if he could get a good gc placing, if not he could go for stages?

Definitely Vuelta.

Not Giro obviously and he's going try win Tour de Pologne this year hence Vuelta is the GT goal.

The tour of Poland doesn't take place at the same time as the tdf. In fact, the tdf is a perfect prep race for it ;)

Another great result, he showing himself to be one of the biggest up and coming talents of the season. Is he doing LBL?
 
To see him perform so well uphill and on the cobbles this year is really amazing. Especially when most of his results, apart from tour of poland, used to come in tts and sometimes sprints too.

I think he has a really good potential, very good all-rounder.
