Landa is an amazing climber, but I have said he is a point under Quintana level.
Quintana is better TT.
I dont know how consistent will be Landa in the future or if he could aim to win importants GC, but as a talented climber, he is the best basque in the last years clearly. He is not taking results, that is right, but he will show that some day.
Of course he'll get results, but why compare him to Quintana? And Anton is still by far the best Basque, his 2010/2011 level was world class.

Intxausti, I have been a big fan, he is a nice guy, .. is a good time trialist in short and hard ITT, he is a good climber, but Landa is more talented climber...and more than Igor, yes, he beat the best Contador, but I know what I mean.
Riders as Landa are difficult to find, but he have had the bad luck to be the same age than Quintana, and the same of Pinot.
But that is not the problem, the problem is that must find his level, and now he is far away.
