I think Schleck was just always not super motivated, mentally fragile, and injuries, the belated Tour win, as well as Fränks suspension did him in the head as much as physically.It’s easy to consider Andy an underachiever, but part of me puts him in the same group as Taylor Phinney and Soler.
Remember that Schleck’s career should’ve been winding down about now. He was only like 26 or 27 when he had the crash that ended his career as a GC rider.
I just don't see how Cunego has underachieved? His only GT podium is a Giro win, and he only has 3 top 5s total. He won Il Lombardia all 3 times he made the top 10. Sure he could've won the 2008 Worlds and he never won LBL, but the short time he was world class he made the most of it.Biggest under achievers: Andy Schleck and Cunego. I think that was easy
Biggest over Achievers: Pereiro maybe. Armstrong, Froome, Thomas.
Took Valverde until 2017 to eclipse Cunego for big wins.
