I think Van Aert is more stylish than MvdP overall. The later is great when he attacks out of the saddle, but overall Wout looks more elegante and just smoother on his bike. My father compared MvdP's position to a crouched big cat, ready to strike (throw in a crazy acceleration out of the saddle) at any moment. Kämna is another rider who looks smooth on his bike.Maybe Mauri has the core engine to keep going 2 days straight but simply lacks the watts to follow the others. Hence by rocking his entire body and using all muscle groups, he is able to put more power onto his pedals, while he won't get tired. I kid. He is the lovechild that came of Pierre Latour, Mollema and Schachmann's illegal love triangle.
I think Van Aert is a very stylish rider. I also like Evenepoel when he is in "on-a-mission" mode.
The thread would be Soupe-less without him.This guy, for the beard alone (also is French). Also, while "souplesse" is not his middle name, "soupe" is his name:
Yes. If it didn't have one, Soupe would have to shave to be allowed back in to France after a race.The beard has its own passport?
Can't say i agree. I understand if you are specifically talking about his out of the saddle accelerations, because they look so smooth and effortless, but my back starts to hurt just looking at him when he is in the saddle. Personally i'm more in the "coalminer" camp.
With Ganna it's mainly on the TT bike, otherwise it's nothing to brag about.Ganna
Yates (nice style of attack)
Evenepoel (when in pocket tt mode)
naming Landa is just fanboyism I believe. He got a proper style, but nothing special.
