Why? It's not like he cracked last year in the 3rd week. In fact, he could've won la Vuelta in 2015 barring sickness he had in the Cortals d´Encamp stage. But that's just hypothetically, which we won't go too far with. The thing he's mastered is consistency, whereas others tend to fade. Also, I think not going to Rio due to health issues was a blessing in disguise.IndianCyclist said:This is the Quintana we were expecting in the TDF. Good performance but i am not sure he can maintain it in the 3rd week.
What disguise He clearly skipped Rio targeting the Vuelta. Perfectly understandable, except for the IOC, which is why he need a doctor's note so Jarlinson could take the start.DNP-Old said:Also, I think not going to Rio due to health issues was a blessing in disguise.

PremierAndrew said:Quintana is right on this one but he can hardly complain about others not providing a spectacle
This.Amnes2015 said:he sounds like a hypocrite , he doesn't care about spectacle
he is ashamed to say but probably he would like also flat ITT's , cobbles , crosswinds and descents to be banned.

He's 100% right. Nothing 'petty' about it. 'Cept if your British, perhaps.

If Froome represents boring power metric racing, and Quintana exciting, "on feeling", riding - I'm all for power meters.
