Kudos to the OP. Yes I was wondering when Jai might earn his own thread. A great ride by him today to put alongside his incredible ride on Piancavallo. I'm with Eclipse - would be great to see him off the leash. Stage 20 his last chance to gain time to offset the TT. Obviously he has a teammate in pink so the only way Subweb can support this is if Kelderman cracks. Maybe if Ineos drill it.
 
I don't think he'll win, but he could, this year and probably not any other year i think, but since i'm a terrible talent scout i could be completely wrong on all of those points.

I do like his style on the bike and he appears to be a nice guy.

It's weird that a guy with such a realistic chance to win the Giro before the final weekend doesn't have more hype or followship around him, but it is a weird year.
 
Absolutely the right decision to go with Hart today, not entirely sure what Wilco is rattling on about, now Sunweb have 2 potential winners and another stage win instead of one completely nuking his chances to save the other 30 seconds.

If Hindley wins the Giro he will go down as the rider with the shortest time gap between having his own thread on the CN forum and winning a GT.
Quite an achievement considering even my grandma probably has a dedicated topic on here.

PS: I voted all the options in the poll just for the lulz.
Froome was close probably if you count his Vuelta 2011 as a win.
 
I don't think he's going to win the Giro since he's not really a better climber than Hart and not a better time trialer than Bilbao, Hart or Kelderman. But who knows.
Anyway, this looks very good for a podium and that itself would be something to be very proud of.

There is one thing he still has to learn if he wants to compete with Evenepoel and Pogacar next year and that is putting on a jacket. But I think he will manage that.
