He is for my money the best rider in the peloton.

But I tell you what... Moscon looks like the next big thing. Seems to climb well, time trial well, sprints well, can attack on punchy hills and he can do the cobblestones! And he's only young.
Just managed to catch the last few km yesterday but pleased to see Sagan claim another title. Easily one of the most entertaining riders to watch and seems to have so many different strengths.

I thought Moscon did well at Vuelta and from what I read he was a bit unlucky getting disqualified yesterday. I know he has had a bit trouble at Sky but if he keeps his head down he should be a top rider.
