Schachmann shouldn't be an issue surely. Also I don't think Schachman is the type of rider that does well on the Malhao.
Seems he was doing pretty well and he was the biggest issue Evenepol had this race.

Some people really know sh*t about riding, or even racing a bike.
Remco not the strongest yesterday. Lol.
Yea we got the proof on Malhao next day that he can just crush anyone in the montains at this point...
Evenepol was the strongest in the ITT the other stages he wasn't.

Btw. I'm certain I do in fact know more about pro racing than you......

Are you or were you a pro cyclist ?
 
When a person makes a very questionable statement and then says "some people don't know sh*t", he can't be taken very seriously. Geisterhome is right, in no way you could tell that Remco was the strongest that day.
I agree about Malhao, but arguments like that just go absolutely nowhere typically, even if the person in question is an active or former pro.

Proving Red Rick wrong in his predictions is easy (is he ever right? He knows so little about cycling he didn't understand Remco's talent as a junior).

The question is: can you use your knowledge to make correct prediction? Will Schachmann be stronger then Remco in Tirreno? Will he be better in the Giro -which is the only thing that really counts?

He wasn't responding to Red Rick and his predictions.

The betting odds thing is a bit absurd, he's still really young and until now he has always been better on hilly and medium mountain filled terrain than on proper mountains.
I expect him to be a legit contender for lbl and the olympics this year, not for the Giro.
Remco has climbed to being second Giro favorite according to the betting odds: Carapaz 2/1 and Remco : 4,5/1. This is not surprising if you take into account that someone like G. Saronni is stating that Remco can already win the Giro. Saronni won the Giro at age 21. Why would Remco not be able to win as a 20 year old, according to Saronni.
