Mentre Kwiatkowski ha continuato a mostrare la forma migliore che esibisce da inizio anno. Vamos ciccio! Romain Bardet : Anno dopo anno dimostra di essere veramente un corridore intelligente e maturo. Quintana, Contador, Porte, etc. Quintana semplicemente non ne aveva. Esteban Chavez non pervenuto.
