MV and MG, stop saying that Dumoulin is not a climber! He is one of the best climbers in the world, that is reasonably proven by winning the Giro last year, winning an uphill finish.


 Neither of us said he wasn't a good climber: he is.
I only made the observation that his usual MO is to sit on wheels and conserve energy for the TTs.
As to being one of the best climbers in the world. I would say it depends how long a list you make.
However, he would not make my top 10 for sure.
Winning on Oropa is one thing, but if he is to get on my list, he will have to deliver on either the Zoncolan or Monte Jafferau.
