I can't recall any circumstance where Barquil appeared to work for anyone. Part of a Duo is some common strategy and assistance. When Nairo came by him with about 4km to go and, after not getting water from the team car (!!???) he just pulled the plug. He could've been that tired but showed no attempt to stay on for a moment.No, I also think he did very well. But his climbing is more volatile than at his absolute peak.
Anyway, surprised that its Arkea’s decision. Always thought that a duo Quintana/Barguil is as good for them as it gets.
