I seem to remember a few years ago there was another of the great French hopes for GTs who turned out to be so bad at descending that iirc he went home after a particularly bad one at a race. I can’t for the life of me remember his name though
The Schleck brothers were pretty rubbish, but were from Luxembourg
I initially thought Pinot and it’s partly the reason for the question as at the Giro a commentator said he descends as well as he climbs.
Was it Eurosport? They're not exactly experts ... I've never heard of Pinot as some demon descender. He looks perfectly competent now 👍
