The only good thing today was the team working together to get some points. They are only three riders. One pulled on the flats and the other one on the Peyresourde. It was all for none but it was nice to see.Sad watching Quintana now. He can't even seem to get motivated for the KOM or maybe he has realized he couldn't win it a few days ago............
I'd give him one more year. I mentioned this earlier but I think he's riding with an injury. He's not looking comfortable at all on the bike. Of course it's his career and he can ride as long as he can get a job but he's a shell of prime Nairoman.The past year hasn't been ideal, but after what he showed in the spring of 2020, I wouldn't write him off yet.
well he tried few times, he failed. i think he's done (WT wise). maybe if he's lucky and ends up in the weaker breakaway...Quintana was good in the non-WT races earlier in the year. Even if he can't compete for GC in WT races, he should at least be able to contend for stages.
Talking about him in that last year is very confusing. But I think you are right.I keep thinking going to a french non-wt was kind of a mistake, considering he has been fading over the last years.
Perhaps a spanish/italian team could be better, as I believe the TdF is the grand tour that suits him the least.
But, then again, this is competitively speaking. Obviously money matters.
I still think he has a GT podium in him. Just not on the TdF.
