And another display of strength today in the TT, extending his GC lead even! Amazing!
Yeah, but hopefully they continue to manage him well. I think they should not send him to a GT this year. Let him target a few of these one-week races instead during the season. Since he is good enough to compete already.Zinoviev Letter said:Wow. Pretty funny that his own team seem as surprised and impressed as everyone else that he is this good already.
Or maybe people don't know what 12-year-olds look like.RedheadDane said:
Unfortunately we really can’t assume that Aru will form part of a strong climbing team these days. Pogacar would be quite likely to be considerably stronger.Lequack said:He was supposed to ride the Volta Catalunya with Dan Martin and Aru, he was still on the startlist few days ago but now apparently he's not. The only upcoming races are showing as La Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège in a month and later Tour of California. Wonder why they decided to pull him out, those three would have made a strong climbing team.
Thanks. It can be frustrating keeping up with which rider is riding whatever race. Especially with revised schedules etc.Lequack said:
Pro-tip. Wait until the teams have posted official start lists, and even then there might be changes.Logic-is-your-friend said:
Yes i'm aware. And for Dumoulin, Froome, Valverde, i couldn't care less. But for these young guys, it's just nice to know which races to look out for.RedheadDane said:Pro-tip. Wait until the teams have posted official start lists, and even then there might be changes.Logic-is-your-friend said:
If a rider is on the start line of a race he's - usually - doing said race.
And descend also apparently. Very impressive today.KZD said:So he can climb, time-trial and even sprint. He is almost like a younger Roglic. Exciting rider.
