Right, so El Fares isn't "high caliber" - but because he finished in the top 30 of the Tour means .... well what exactly?pmcg76 said:Well I would agree that El Fares in not exactly on a par with previous winners, he is a rider that is well ahead of JTL in terms of results and standing, Top 30 in Tour de France aint nothing to sniff at but thats kinda the point really. JTL wasnt anywhere near there level beforehand but now all of a sudden he can make them look second rate.
Haut Var was decided over a 1 km climb - El Fares went to early and was still only caught in the last 200m.
Again if you think JTL putting 1 second in to El Fares makes him look "second rate" then I can see why you have a negative view of him.
