If he is saving himself for a GT where he'll face 53 km of time trial, it's even more dumb that I thought.Landa is doing Giro-Tour double. Since he has that podium spot almost guarranteed, i'm wondering if that's the reason he doesn't want to risk it all and waste energy for nothing. What do you think?
He lost his explosivety that he had until about 2019. So is more difficult to make separations.I think today's final climb was too easy for Landa and he had no one up the road to help if he attacked on the 2nd last climb
He hasnt go the speed of Carapaz or Hindely so he needs to have a very long steep steady climb at the end ...not what we have had this Giro imo
Even tomorrow the biggest climb is not at the end of the stage and this does not suit Landa
I also wonder about Bahrain and support ...do they know what to do for the best ?
Landa is getting alot of stick but he cant beat Carapaz and Hindely in the last 3km of a so so climb and he cant go early without support in the valleys
has Landa ever had the kick you mention? sorry, but I don't think so.He lost his explosivety that he had until about 2019. So is more difficult to make separations.
Bahrain could have played better tactics with Poels, Bilbao and Buitraggo but the route doesn't help with this.
3 words: Po ten shulLanda has been one of the best climbers in the sport since he heralded himself at this race years ago. But I don’t get the mythical hype? What has he done since 2015 that justifies the love? Unless I missed something in this stage (which I didn’t watch) I say Landa is not a better climber at this race than Carapaz or Hindley despite the best efforts of Bahrain. All evidence suggests this will likely be confirmed again on stage 20.
Yeah, my impression is that he told the team on San Pellegrino that he wasn't feeling great.He clearly didn't have the legs, that's why Bahrein wasn't riding a big tempo on the first 2 climbs.
I really hope he ride the Vuelta instead of the Tour, but he always seems to be better when riding the Tour in Giro-Tour double.
