And the two of the four is Purito and Valverde both in their 30's,less be honest i dont see them as a future threat in the GT Gesink will do.So good luck outclimbing
Froome, Contador,Schleck and Nibali i could go on and on.
Sergio Henao was shedding Gesink on the climbs in this Vuelta and its his first year in europe.
In the interview he gave he said the climb wasnt going as well as expected, but he drove as fast as he could uphill. That was all he could do he said.
I was hoping, after reading a dutch cycling site, all the bickering about Robert Gesink would be less on an international site, but i was wrong.
Its good to see a Dutch rider is bringing so many emotions to the cycling fans. Anyways, i see all these posts about being a second rate climber and all, and maybe he is, maybe he isnt, but hes there, top 5 atm, and i hope he can keep it. If thats not good then why are the other 175 riders even riding ? They might as well give up dont you think ?
If Gesink can keep this up, and make a little progression next year, he will be back up with the top riders. Right now, hes doing a great job of being the best of the rest. I think we Dutch people should be happy we have one up there performing with the best.
Yes, it's strange. He only had the 30th time or so on the uphill part, whereas he's among the 5 best climbers in this race. But it's not only this time trial where that's the case, and it goes for more Rabobank riders, so it's only logical their DS should ask this question.
