Bollox :)

8 disc wins. Only 6 rim.

The riders currently likely to podium are on rim brakes, and that will be purely to save weight. Two of those teams are using unbranded rims for the same reason.

Do we think those 3 riders wouldnt podium if they used discs? Of course not.

Is it just me, or does Pogačar look like he doesnt really need a team??
Probably wouldn't have lost 1:20 on Stage 7 if he had a decent team. But yeah he looks absolutely fine in the moutnains flying solo.

It's a shame he lost the time really. Would be interesting to see Roglic having to make up 40 seconds, and have to reveal how much he really has left in the tank.

He won the Tour de l'Avenir, but didn't record a stage win.
He also finished 7th at the WC road race.
Promising, but not exceptional.
bahhaahah yes those results are so unexceptional

I love how so many people online like to frame incredible results in a denigrating light through a lens of absurdly high standards in a matter-of-fact tone as if they’re just being objective.

They're not exceptional compared to some of his peers and don't justify becoming the best climber in the world since joining Giannetti's team. If you want to somethin exceptional, look at Bernals first year at U23 or MvdP junior results. I don't even have to mention Evenepoels junior performances.
