Iserbyt reminds me a lot of Alaphilippe, Pidcock, despite his different build, more of van Aert. But of course we now have to rename this thread "Pidcock is the new van der Poel". Or, as the French say, Tomthieu.But if he's 1.7 meters, he's not that small. Although he has tiny shoulders. I think his shoulders are about half as wide as SK's.
I only saw the end of the race but he must have been crazy strong to put time into MVDP. Not sure yet what his road strength will be, one would assume hilly classics given his size ==> but he's young so maybe could pivot toward stage races. I also think Iserbyt could be a good stage racer; have no idea on his recovery but he's got a climber's build.
He's really not that small anymore. I had that wrong.
