Oh good, I noticed he was at Paris-Nice, but he's been mostly invisible this year. Time trialing is definitely his strong point.

Since he's likely going to be assigned to domestique duties in most races this year, time trials are about the only opportunities he'll have to show what he can do. Nearly equaling Roglic's time in a time trial should make some DSs of other teams sit up and take notice.

he had a great giro. i'm sure he'll have some offers when his current contract expires.

There are two more mountain stages, so he will be tested. It's a good sign that he stayed with the front group today. We'll see.
