I have already watched The Giro Dell Emilia. In Quintana's biography in the first page i wrote about this win. Yes, Quintana was amazing but i think Thibaut has the conditions to be better hily classics than Nairo. I see him as a Fleche Wallonnie and Lombardie future winner.Afrank said:Yes, I agree with you. Quintana definitely has shown more talent, as well as great potential to be a GT contender. I would say Pinot's 10th in the Tour shows the most potential to be a GT contender at this point. I think we'll have to see how Quintana does in a GT with full leadership before we can declare him to definitely be a GT contender.
Go watch Giro dell'Emilia this year, and then tell us if Pinot has more potential in the hilly classics. Quintana was amazing in it, his first attack reduced the peloton into a handful of just a few riders, then his 2nd attack dropped everyone. Plus there was also his 11th in Lombardia.
