Evenepoel beat him by 3 minutes up the cat 1 climb yesterday while Van Der Poel has shown to be a very good sprinter, particularly at the end of a hard ride. I will be curious to see how Van Der Poel does in the time trial on Sunday. Van Aert showed he was pretty good at those.
I think you just might be correct with your thoughts. We are just fortunate to have such great young talent coming along in the sport.
