As I mentioned in another thread,Looking forward to see if Sepp can at least get Roglic to the base of the final climb today. He's the best US climber since...Dombrowski? TJ?
I'm curious to see how his career develops. Maybe, if all goes well, try his luck as a GC contender in TdS or Dauphine? He's really, really slight, like Bardet slight, so perhaps not suited for a grand tour, but a mountainous week long stage race could suit him. On the other hand Jumbo will need lots of mountain helpers next year...
He’s a pretty solid TTer when he is riding for a win. He whipped TJVG in the Utah TT a year or so back.Great win, I hope he goes to the Tour next year.
He will surely be a key mountain domestique for Roglic and Dumoulin in the next years.
He might also be leader in races without a time trial like Volta a Catalunya.
Kinda difficult to whip the stage winnerAs I mentioned in another thread,

The TT later in the race.Kinda difficult to whip the stage winner
Maybe Ciccone a bit, but he also stays in the saddle for longer periods of time. Pozzovivo is still climbing a lot out of the saddle, but I can't think of too many younger guys.Come to think of it, he climbs "en danseuse" a lot. After Contador quit, who else still climbs like that? Most of the colombians stay in the saddle i believe?
Since I recently watched Tour of Utah, the Canadian sensation that is James Piccoli reminded me a lot of Contador. He's doing the Canadian classics this week.Enric Mas
