That would be great, actually.Remco will finish 9th at 11 minutes out in his first Giro.
Actually i've compared him to Cancellara as well in the past, but with the notion that he weighs probably 20 kilo less. What would happen when a worldclass ITT'er loses weight comparable to that of a climber? Haven't we seen any such guy win the TDF recently, and another the Giro? With that notion that most of them lose a bit of ITT top end speed in order to be able to climb better. But Remco already is a lightweight and already is an ITT phenomenon. So i do find Lequack's post a bit strange. Especially since given his weight, he should be in fact less of a classics rider.I have to say the comparison with Cancellara hadn’t manifested in my tiny brain. I’d actually liken him to Froome, in that he can TT, he can put in a burst and ride people off his wheel, he clearly has huge aerobic capacity and of course he has little explosiveness. Froome struggled most on shorter, steeper ramps which may be where Remco struggles too.
