People speak a lot about MVDP, who is an incredible rider, but WVA is the real deal. The man can do it all. Can sprint with the best, can time trial with the best, can climb with the best, can win cobbles races, can win hilly races, etc.
Men, Im impresed with him.
Van Aert's the real deal? You mean the supporters of van der Poel have been bamboozled?

I'm also very impressed with Wout. And i'm also impressed with Mathieu. Neither are cheap knock-offs.
 
No, I mean Im more impresed with WVA than with MVDP
I dunno man, in a couple of days we’ve seen one beat the reigning best puncheur in the world in a final climb punch off... and then the other beat a guy who is by general consensus one of the top 2 bunch sprinters in the world in a bunch sprint. I have great difficulty picking the bigger freak.

But WVA is more polyvalent than MVDP. I mean, basically WVA can do what MVDP does plus some other things.
 
Really quality group at the front. Peloton is still big though.
