RK will get better and better, both he and Basso will shine in the third week. He is going to be in top 3, even have a chance to throw Basso out of the throne:D

the level seems so low,kreuziger might even podium.
Let's not get ridiculous now. You know as well as I do that he can't climb with the best riders here, as low as the level may be. The three high mountain stages are yet to come. Yesterday's medium mountain stage, because that's what it was, is another matter.

I'm not sure, he's still doing better than one of the best climbers in superb form :D

Two of the best climbers, actually. :eek:

But there's still Basso, Scarponi, Henao, Purito and Gadret who will almost certainly beat Kreuziger in GC. Maybe a few others, too.
Who is the second one?

he hasn't improved in years. nibali is also overrated. vino need to have a better transfer policy. only some like kiserlovski were good buys

Yeah but even without improving Kreuziger has always been a reliable top 10 machine, producing wholly unspectacular and forgetable results. Consistency was his saving grace. At least if you signed him you knew he'd be up there scoring you some points, even if ultimately nothing came out of it.

I guess having a truly bad day is not the end of the world, but I wasn't expecting something like this.

Should buy De Gendt if he's up for it. Agressive versatile rider who's on the rise. You can say Nibali's overrated, but his palmares says he gets results, and he actually attacks as well. Can't think of many current GC guys who are more like Vino tbh.

he probably had a hungerflat but even without it he might have finished 7th or so this giro.

de gendt has a difficult mentality but maybe vino could motivate him. he's physically extraordinary talent
