Pantani was one of the biggest introverts in sports. He'd be alone most of the time, didn't really like to talk to press, often trained by himself. Come to think about it, I don't recall ever seeing him laugh (but my memory could be the problem here).
He was charismatic in his own way, but his legendary status mostly comes from what he did on the bike and perhaps from his odd appeareance: bald at young age, slender figure, wearing a bandana.

Froome looks a lot more extrovert to me, at least this is the impression I gather from social media and interviews. Roglic, I don't know. I guess he's very good at hiding his feeling.
Froome clocked in at 80th place in the TT, one spot behind Rick Zabel.
17 seconds down on Nibali and 40 down on Fuglsang. Could have been worse...
 
Isn't Bjerg your average ' quickly adult body' type of rider who never progresses?
Yep, but he was claiming to be one of the 10 best ITT'ers a while ago already, so it's remarkable that he hasn't managed to make the top 10 of either ITT's that he raced in 2020. He's really only been dominant in the WCC U23 so far. He's won 3 of those, but outside of that not much else. Even regular ITT's in the U23 were quite often won by other riders. Basically, i have my doubts about his trainers and other people guiding him. Either he is not progressing like he should/could, or they completely misread his actual potential and had him believe he was better than he actually was.

Lol a neo with barely fifteen race days. As an under he was close to top twenty in Avenir, won that Triptyque race and does not want to be a time trial specialist afaik. I thought it was a bad idea with a third under year though. He is doing the world's time trial next week, maybe a better distance.

Ganna’s time is so fast that it actually makes it hard to judge how good others were. Yates won but he was shipping 2 seconds a km to Thomas, which would really start to add up at the Giro.
Doubt the first ITT will have big gaps with having an uphill start and mostly being downhill. Then last day ITTs area always weird.

As for the middle hilly ITT, I don't think Thomas excels at the hilly ones I think he's better on really flat ones.

Hi guys. I recorded last two stages of Tirreno-Adriatico from the international feed, it means it is in best possible quality for this race. The size is around 50GB's. I won't keep it for myself, so I thought maybe somebody would need it for whatever reason. I can share before I delete it

Is he really? His TT last year in the TdF was pretty good and that one wasn't exactly flat.
