 Coming back over a minute after a flat... absolutely nuts. He had to bridge 3 groups to get to the leaders, and had enough to stay in 3rd. GOAT doesn't begin to cover it.

 @bonkmasterflex: given how much beef Avancini has with Schurter it was just a little bit funny to see Nino smashing back past his group like they were standing still.

 @Graham4stevens: Yes. I want to see this on-form Nino go up against an on-form Pidcock, but we might have to wait a few months.

 @pasales: It's funny because relative to the general population he definitely isn't a big guy - or chubby imho - but in the context of a world cup xc racer he certainly stands out. They are mostly pretty small dudes.

 His ftp has to be around 450ish or higher to put that much power down on the hills and be competitive.
