Very underrated IMO. Would like to see him go for another GC at Giro or Vuelta.

If he doesn't want to, why should he? He's pretty brilliant at what he does. :D
it's indeed that he doesn't wat to do it anymore, said in an interview that he was then 2/3 kilo's lighter than now doesn't want to do the efforts anymore...

+ a couple hundred kilometers working at the front of the peloton.


--> that's half the Tour :cool:


And he also participated in every Sprint + KoM in those breaks

3rd year in a row he finishes top 10 in the points competition and 2nd year in a row podiums the KoM competition. #randomfacts

“It is my ultimate goal to win a Vuelta stage, as I already won a stage in Giro and Tour. That is something I really want to achieve in my career. I read that at the moment 99 riders were able to win at least one stage in all three Grand Tours. It would be nice to be the hundredth rider in history"

mmmm... which stage would go nicely with Stelvio & Ventoux ?

Maybe he would prefer to ride over the line first, but he has won a stage in the Vuelta.
Am I missing something here? No ITT or TTT win at the Vuelta. He has won a couple of stages in the Volta (a Catalunya) though.

Are we still talking about Nibali here? In official papers he did win stage 20 in Vuelta 2010 when Mosquera was wiped out from the results.

Oh, if it's Nibali then he's won the 2013 TTT with Astana as well!

De Gendt is an excellent role model for young WT or PCT riders - Get into a break with De Gendt and you learn the requirements to be a very good WT rider.
Probably the smartest rider around re knowing how to ride in a break and making the most of his opportunities. Even when he fails to win it's always entertaining.
