He is a wasted talent, it's so bad to see him wasting his talent. He got the benefits of being a good pro, he has the Ferrari and lots of travel, etc. but just doesn't take the sport seriously enough.
I don't mind him winning, actually I'd like to him win more and bigger races.
I don't think his account portrays a waste of talent. You have to be kidding me if you think us regular Joes wouldn't buy a sweet car, especially if we had his money and lived in Monaco. Most of the photos are of him doing pretty normal things- eating decent food, lots of pictures with his parents, he travels for training/sponsor purposes quite a lot, and doesn't post only about boring shit like his rides.
At this point I am so sick of hearing about doping and all these details about how hard it is to come up and how cycling is basically awful in a lot of ways. Its nice to see someone actually enjoying themselves for once.
To me he wasn't wasted and someone has to come second to Boonen and Fabian. Compared to them he is just 1 step below and very few riders in history could ever match them. Pozzato still has a better record than 98% of classics riders. It was really impressive seeing him get 2nd in Flanders a few years ago when he had basically no team and both Ballan and Boonen had strong, high dollar squads.
