Four days before the Vuelta it's time for a poll. Who is your favourite for the final victory? Nine candidates are listed. If you vote "other" you can specify it in the thread.
He is definitely the favorite, but idk if the longer and really steep climbs suit him more than others. He had problems on Mortirolo in Giro, whether he came in too hot or not, and there are some climbs with similar or higher gradients. Idk if that could matter. I think having a very strong team to control will help a lot, which he didnt have in the Giro. He will be hard to beat if he finds some of that form from earlier in the season.If Roglic reaches and keeps his 'normal' level, I don't see him losing this Vuelta. Climbs suit him, just like the TTT+ITT..
He might be better than Aru. Top 10 seems very possible, but it's only his first GT.What yall think Pogacar can do? Top 10 or even better?
The course suits him, with a lot of middle mountains and finishes on muritos.Lol why is Valverde on the list
Two very dissimilar situations, if you ask me.Think Roglic has learned his lesson the same way Yates last year learned his
He hasn't won a GC for 10 years, he hasn't looked like winning one since 2012? What has the past got to do with now? Also, since his WC win, he has lost the eye of the tiger.
So because he is a legend, he is a favourite? nonsense... the guy is 39 years old, he is not a gt contender anymore, even in his prime years he only won one vuelta because the stars alligned to that win.
Seriously?He was a couple of stages from winning last year and the race suits him better this year + in the Tour he showed he has still got it.
People have kept saying thrughout the last many years that Valverde is not a GC candidate, yet he rides GC much more successfully than most others.
