Allez Romain, a light spot in the dark. Such a great rider, it would be fantastic if he keeps his podium spot.
Great ride by Bardet today showing his climbing ability against the elite GC contenders plus impressive 3rd week powers of recovery that are crucial for winning GTs. He is only 25 so should get stronger particulary for TTs. You may be right :exclaim:portugal11 said:Bardet is the only french that could win a gt in 2 years

Agree. He's earned the title of "#1 French GT rider". Great year. Epic stage win. Well-deserved podium.Alexandre B. said:2nd in Critérium du Dauphiné

He has reached another step. His duo with Alaphilippe will be interesting to watch in Rio.
He vomited en route to Cauterets last year due to the heat and was fighting for the stage win the day after. He came from 20th on GC to 9th plus a stage win, finishing with the GC group behind Nibali-Quintana-Froome on La Toussuire the day after his stage win.IndianCyclist said:He is not yet at big 4 level but he is the best of the rest. However he may have a consistency problem. Last year he gave up on GC
