So what Bardet is saying, is that if all the others woulde be riding as fast as they were last year, he would be in yellow and leading with a few minutes?Bardet on the race so far:
'We’re breaking climbing records on every col we go up on this Tour'www.cyclingnews.com
Maybe fmk_Rol can find a way to downvote Bardet for saying such crazy things.
I also think it's not evident to compare this year due to covid. Less races, no classics yet. On top of first week climbs (which is usually never the case in TDF) i do believe some riders would be more fresh than in other years.
