I don't think Kohl was on anyone's radar to place high on GC this year, so he's something of a revelation. What I don't understand is why he doesn't hardly merit anything but a passing comment from anyone on VS. Even after he spent several days in 4th place, they would run down the GC standings, skip over him, and start talking about Menchov. Now that he is on the virtual podium, will they at least talk about his chances, his strengths/weaknesses, etc? They also spend time covering their pre-ordained "overall contenders" everyday, when many of them are minutes down and totally out of contention. I will give them credit for giving VdV some good coverage, and he is in the similar "revelation" category, but I think that is because he is American.
