So at a level where he could follow the two on Tourmalet this year, or closer to the level of Hindley?
I think vingegaard's climbing level is superior to pogacar's level, but let's admit what you said.

I think Remco's and roglic's climbing level in the tour will be in the middle of these two levels you talked about. I cannot see them day and day out climbing at the same level of pogacar and roglic, but clearly they are much better than hindley's climbing level.

are we using the royal they to refer to Remco now? (sorry, I do not drop into this thread as often as sufferers of RDS)

edit: apparently I can't read

Everyone besides Vingegaard, now that Pogacar will start with the Giro. Doesn't mean Remco will beat them, I can definitely see Roglic finish in front of him, but I don't feel one or the other is much better so I can see both of them on the podium with Vingegaard.

I see. Well, if you believe Remco can beat everybody, bar Jonas. Then if that is the case, rest assured he can beat them all.

Haha, I know what you are implying, but there's really a difference between them.

Because they can stop him coming off his bike or getting a puncture or two.
They can guide him, and help him if there are issues. Like WVA did for Vingegaard.

Paris-Nice is the more likely choice. It would be his second biggest win in a stage race. It's a good preparation for the spring and the Tour.
Remco is doing Paris-Nice, according to PCS. I'm going to the last two stages again. It was such fun this year. It will be cool to see how Remco does in it.

I personally don't think of Remco as a GC rider, no matter how much PL is trying to make him one. I don't think Remco is built for it. To me he's much more suited to stage wins and riding the classics, 1-day races. He's the wrong build for or GC, imo. Same with Wout and Mathieu. Not everyone built for GC!!
 
Apparently Pogi was initially going to be doing Tirreno but switched to doing Catalunya instead. Yes, curious to see what Jonas and in particular Primož will be doing!
Oh he isn't riding Tirreno? Would think that was part of the deal when he got money to ride the Giro. Then again, neither did Remco last year.

In that case I don't expect Vingegaard, Roglic and Evenepoel to all ride Paris-Nice. One of them will go for Tirreno.
