Go Yatesy!! This is just seeming eerily familiar to earlier this year. I hope he can hold it together now and achieve the goal of being competitive in the 3rd week.
I agree that it would be great to see some new blood take the Movistar position on the podium. I don't like the way Movistar operate, and I think Valverde has dragged Quintana a few rungs down the ladder since he started a few years ago. Having said that, I do dislike the way Valverde plays tactics and games, but I do respect his ability. It is amazing to see an all rounder performing at such a high level over a wide range or parcours and particularly at his age. He just seems to be able to win a lot of races... probably only bettered by Sagan in race winning versatility, but it is unlikely Sagan will ever be in the running for a Grand Tour.
