I just meant that young people who are successful often dream of bigger things. He's definitely been successful at a young age so he can be forgiven for dreaming of bigger and better things like GC championships. I wasn't critiquing him at all.

With that said, I am very neutral on Remco and I know most people aren't so I probably shouldn't have weighed in on him. My typo didn't help!
Ah, don't say that because some clown (moi) pushes back. Weigh in all you want!

My guess would be Logic personally explaining to every Remco-doubter that they shouldn't doubt him
Looks like Simon Yates beat me to the punch though.


Here are some quotes:

''I read on the Cyclingnews forum that certain posters are doubting Evenepoel, reacting annoyed when confronted with logic and well founded arguments of certain other posters''. (*)

“You look at his demonstration at San Sebastián it would be silly to discount him,” Yates said Wednesday. “Of course he is still very young. I think everyone is still saying, ‘three weeks, three weeks,’ but at some point in the future he will be one of these grand tour riders over three weeks.”

“This year might not be the year, at some point it’s coming,” Yates said. “So we’ll see if it’s this year or not.”

(*) I may or may not have made up the opening sentence.

I wonder how often the pros read forums. It has to be pretty common. I would like to think our comments are having at least some sort of background effect on the sport.
