Froome seems to have no problems with the Tour-Vuelta double and he's an anorexic skeleton. Same goes for Quintana and Valverde.IndianCyclist said:Petacchi 2003 is probably the best sprinter season- 6 Giro, 4 TDF, 5 Vuelta out of his 48 total GT stages.
Pantani double is the best but there are too many asterisks in that era.
Nowadays the focus is on reduced weight which also hampers recovery and retraining after a GT. So it is difficult to be competitive and probably the double is not feasible
