He climbed fairly well last year's TdF and in Tour of California.davidka said:Martin is very young and still occasionally beats Cancellara in TT's. Cancellara didn't begin to really dominate TT's until the last few years. Martin gave up 17 seconds to FC today at Tdf, 5th place was 3 minutes slower. His GC position at TdF is meaningless, he's riding for the team. This kid is incredible, if he scrapes off a few kgs and climbs better he will be a dominant rider.
