quintana absolutely destroyed everyone in uphill ITT in tour l'avenir. Since then it's pretty obvious that when a ITT goes uphill he should not fear many, not even the amazing Porte

Porte seems over the top of his PN form tho.
Possibly a bit but the weather has been so brutal in the last few days it's hard to tell.

Yeah, he's the real deal this one.

I'm very curious to see how he'll do in a reasonably long flat TT. I guess we'll have to wait for the Dauphine.
I looked earlier but couldn't find a Dauphine parcours - has it not been announced yet?

As the ASO like to use the Dauphine as nothing more than a warmup race now perhaps we'll see the hilly TdF ITT in this year's Dauphine edition.

I enjoyed that.

It's not really a surprise that he is that good on a technical and demanding course is it?

Yeh it will have a decent sized flat ITT. Should really be doing Suisse where he'd be unbeatable.

That said he may not want to hit top form so just go for a couple of stages like many TdF'ers do.

I meant in the Tour ofc. We all know Nibali will take care of Sir Bradley Borg in the Giro.

Will he still ride for Valverde, or will they go for a dual pronged attack?
Quintana will have a free role at the very least.
 
Vino attacks everyone said:
Really starting to cheer for this guy now. Hopefully he can make a carnage togheter with Valverde this July! :cool:
It's key for Quintana that Valverde's in great form, to even have a remote chance of podiuming the TdF. They need each other badly.

Quintana was impressive didn't know he was that good of a time-trialist maybe Sky missed out on the best of the new Columbian riders

I saw it and I was going to post it. You beat me to it. The real problem is that Quintana does not speak English.
The only people I've seen accused of doping by the media are a Chinese swimmer a south African runner, a morocan runner and a mestizo Colombian cyclist who won a week stage race.

Others are perfectly free to win tdf's out of nowhere, run the 100m is 9.6, do the 5, 10 double, win 18 golds or whatever it was.

And if you ask questions of them its sedition.
