Heras and Simoni are "pure" climbers in my book. An on-form Simoni at the Giro owned the mountains. Heras attacked on the Angrilu in the Vuelta last year, something like a 21% grade!? Would've won GC if he could time trial at all.
Petacci is probably as pure a sprinter as Cipo and may well replace him. When on form he's beaten Cipo and McEwen isn't really in the same league. Like Cipo sure can't climb either.
