Valverde Is Not A GC Contender

Recommended Posts

Period. End of story.  It is Quintana and Landa. Not Quintana, Landa, & Valverde.

Honestly, if I was Movistar, I would look at who my heaviest climber/best descender was and go with him.  If he is reasonable in a TT, all the better.  Froome is winning not on the mountains but on the descents and in the TTs, so if you are a lightweight like Quintana, you are NOT going to match up well against Froome anymore.  And cobbles aren't a light guy's friend either.

I'd say Movistar is a DISTANT long shot against a healthy Froome and Sky.  Only injury will stop Froome.
