today one of the strongest in the race. when he went full gas, landa and many dropped. also kept countering kreuziger. amazing. I will wonder if it will come to a switch in leadership, who sebastian will support this coming giro...

yes, that is true. he's more for longer climbs. but he's also still very explosive. not as sergio though. sebastian is more natural climber and henao is more build also like a sprinter almost

With Landa gone, it is time to unleash Seba and his magnificent 3rd week. White jersey can still be obtained.
Yes, he already has pretty good legs and he's a beast wen it comes to recovery, super strong in the high mountains. It won't be easy (he's almost 12 min behind Jungels and 6'25" behind Formolo), but now that he has a free role he has a shot.

Jungles will fade, he's not good enough to stay on the climbs of the last 9 days, and I think Formolo will struggle as well I can't see past Henao for white

13th on Alpe d'Huez(he wasn't in the breakaway so it was an incredible ride by him):

Also this where he finished with Fuglsang and Anacona from a breakaway:
http://cqranking.com/men/asp/gen/race.asp?raceid=27956

Also this where he finished with Mollema(he wasn't in the breakaway so it was an incredible ride by him):

I don't think he was doubting his talents as a climber, the question will be wether Jungels can perform consistently for 3 weeks, which were about to find out. Other than that, not much can be said thus far.

12 minutes are a lot.Though he can also fade like Gallopin or Thomas in last years Tour or like Porte in 2014 Tour.

True. One bad day can really screw over your GC ambitions. It'll be an interesting watch. Don't think Jungels has ever been in this position before, dealing with the pressure that comes with defending a pink jersey and his GC.

You do not even need to lose 12 minutes in this current climate of riding for your GT to be over. 3 minutes with the 4km MTF attacks is pretty much GG
