He's been the strongest climber all race, so I guess it's kind of consistent with his previous performances. But to do that in stage 20 is a seriously high level and shows some pretty amazing recovery.
He was dropped by Roglic and Lopez on the hardest Tour of the stage. I don’t think his climbing third week was anything to shout about really.

Except he only dropped everyone once and got dropped on the queen stage for half a minute.

Now I'm reminded of the Vuelta last year where he also went nuclear on the penultimate day but I didn't pay attention there cause the VAMs were super low.

Not by that much - that was crazy. Then tag it to a flat portion of the TT that was also pegged and it just makes me laugh. There are a handful of performances over the past 20+ years where I just kind of chuckle and shake my head. This is one of them. It's past the tipping point
