Purito was a slave to Valverde. I don't know if Dan Martin was sick already on the Ventoux (don't think so though) but I think that's about his level on the real climbs: top 15-20. Of course he can improve, but I think Talansky and Hesjedal have more endurance than him.Pentacycle said:I think you could've said the same about Purito seven years ago, who also showed flashes of brilliance but suffered lots of bad days. GT-wise Martin can definitely improve. Keep in mind that his 2013 TdF was significantly better than in 2012.
