Earlier this year we have already seen, not 100% sure where exactly, an improvement in FDJ TT overall. I think they won a TTT on a stage race and had another great result that showed their more serious approach of TT. Maybe Vaughters sentence this winter about oldschool training of Rolland made FDJ think about it haha.johnymax said:I still can't believe when I think of last year's ITT in Tour de Suisse when he couldn't keep up with Dumoulin, Thomas and Spilak and actually fell out of the podium despite being the race leader before the TT and having a pretty decent advantage. But in reality I always thought he was underrated as a TTer. Many thought of him as a bad TT rider but he was constantly between 10th and 20th position in the last few years. The problem was some GC riders were always better than him. So I thought he was still good and underrated. Until this year, when I started to believe he's become overrated. A lot of people talked about how he's developed in a great TT rider, but I thought to myself that's what I heard last year, too. So I wanted to see this big improvement first. After Pais-Vasco I wasn't convinced. I thought he did OK, but nothing special and still lost too much time to the best. But that ride yesterday convinced me. If he can constantly come out with these performances he'll be a contender for the win in every stage race he enters. Chapeau to him and to FDJ.
