The "How does Pavel Sivakov not have a thread yet" thread

How does this guy not have his own thread yet? Another sterling performance today. I really hope he can keep it up for the next week. He's already showing the Tour of the Alps was no fluke.
 
Great rider. There's only one question about him, how long will he keep improving?
It sounds a bit stupid, but he comes from a cycling family, started pretty early and hs been racing for a really professional U23 team, he could end up peaking early like many Dutch gc prospects.
 
satisfied that I picked him for my CQ ranking squad - he has been doing really well, and the unfortunate Bernal crash might have been a blessing in disguise for Sivakov

I like this young man, hope he has good future. Will be nice to have more expectations turn real to compete with the endless supply of late bloomers and crossover heroes.

Well, he's made a big step the past few months. So i think it's a bit early to question his ability to improve. It's always a possibility, but i don't know why it'd be a bigger problem for him, than for anybody else. He turns 22 in about 6 weeks.

He has the potential to be the first French Tour winner since Hinault.
Well, isn't he Russian?

But I agree.
Serious question: Would french media/cycling fans consider him French? Does he see himself as french?
The Cycling Podcast asked him this question a couple of days ago, and despite answering in a mild French accent, he confirmed that he considers Russia to be his cycling nationality...
