He hadn't, correct. But when he had to step up to the plate and become the leader of his team he did it and walked away with the trophy. He also had completed the Vuelta twice so was proven over 3 weeks racing.Well, Geoghegan Hart never showed GT winning abilities even while winning a GT. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
I'm really hoping Remco will come back to his normal self next season as I want to see him up against the best. Then he can be judged.
