Cool cat this guy... I watched every day of the tour and his win was as strategic as it was a show of performance. He rode with confidence, consistency, and caution.
The accidents that took out his main competitors early on were accidents he was able to avoid.
One of the small handful of riders to win all three Grand Tours. My hats off to this man. It was a great year for the tour and an even greater year for Italy.
