Well, it is pretty easy to ride alone when you have riders up the road from an early break that you can aim for as checkpointsLibertine Seguros said:Especially when he won that Route du Sud by attacking and dragging everybody around from 60k+ to go before finishing solo.jaylew said:Ugh, why are you always so negative? So, Nairo is on your s**tlist too? What on earth do those results have to do with that? It's such a stupid term to throw around in a sport that's defined by it.El Pistolero said:Sounds like wheelsucker results to me.Valv.Piti said:Can't escape the hype by now. Will win Route du Sud and Vuelta a Burgos next year at Movistar and a stage at a WT-stage race and domestique in his first GT in the Vuelta. Ring any bells?Escarabajo said:I don't like that he is being hyped so much. Mentality is the other part of the equation. Let's hope for the best that this Kid can win something big one day.
Pisti will inevitably go on about the poor quality field in order to justify an opinion that Nairo has never won a real solo, so still always follows wheels, though (Martello doesn't count because of the red flags and Formigal doesn't count because of Brambilla not being dropped even though Quintana pulled the whole way up the climb, Neila doesn't count because it's only a prep race, Le Semnoz doesn't count because Froome let him go, and Terminillo doesn't count because it was snowy and Monte Grappa doesn't count because everybody was upset because of Martello and cried so Quintana out-climbing them without a wheel to suck anywhere in sight doesn't count, and Lagos de Covadonga doesn't count because... well, I'm sure he'll think of something...).
