Yes, he for sure got a bit worse in time trials...I wonder why? Maybe he's unpopular because of his controversial media talks. In grand tours he made it to top five in Giro, that I'd call progress, or not? Last year he had a bad day, but then the victorious stage was epic. In shorter stage races...well...that's true. It's one of his goals for this year. Another is Tour de France, where he'll be domestique for Alberto. But preparation for P - N isn't going very well.Angliru said:It's not any type of bias that I can see. He simply hasn't risen his game the way someone like Nibali has. They were both considered the up and coming grand tour riders back in 2009 but while Nibali has podiumed, battled for victories in grand tours and actually won one, Kreuziger has struggled to even match his earlier success in the major week-long stage races let alone in the grand tours where he seems to be spinning his wheels.
And due to his style of racing of course, but last year he was getting better.
