CVV saying Kuss is a unicorn...
Remco saw 40 unicorns go up the road with his race.. CVV thinks Kuss has the TT skills to do this from day one? This race was all about one really really horrible day by a little Belgian energizer bunny.. Reverse the Jonas wins and Kuss went away solo we can start a unicorn discussion. Remco is a Chevy 350 and Kuss is a Volvo..

I don't know much about specific car engines but your writing style never ceases to crack me up! :D
 
Kuss has them beat in another discipline as well

Yes it is, even if it'll go down in history as a gift,
Here’s where I disagree slightly. Kuss is no Oscar Pereiro. Was he as strong as the other two? No he wasn’t, but he was stronger than the rest of the race, and had he skipped a GT and gone to altitude like Roglic and Jonas, then he may have climbed even better, which is a lot since he still put the likes of Mas, Ayuso, Almeida, Evenpoel, Vlasov, etc…

I have never doubted that Sepp has the physical capabilities to win a GT if he focused on it. His weakness has always seemed on the mental side of things. He is the best pure climber the USA has produced since Hampsten.

Unchained helped me. This may be just the beginning of the Sepp show. Maybe all he needed was the confidence. Maybe he as it now :)
