There are legit arguments, pro and con, for road disc. But, there are a lot of silly concerns thrown around here about things that have been fully vetted off-road.
If you dream of being famous - think of what birds do to statues.

Good to see him coming back in shape but imho the ATOC was low level in the mountains. With all due respect to the riders, it is not a mystery why some riders like Dennis or Craddock have had their first good showing of the season in the mountains... The level was a bit low.
Anyway, Joe D. is improving but at the start of the season, I would have hoped to see him riding top 15 in the Giro di Italia. I know it is knee injury's fault but I mean he already had good showing at ATOC 2 years ago when he was in Bontrager development team so there is no real improvement so far.
We already talked about this I'm not sure Sky training methods are developping him fine so far. With the rumored changes, we might see more of him but really, I wished he would have done the Trentino and Giro di Italia in good form to see what he has.
While agreeing that ToC is a lower level than a Grand Tour obviously, he set a pretty high pace that shelled a ton of riders, covered attacks, and still pulled on the front for a really, really long time. Impressive with barely 3 weeks of riding.

This kind of asphalt needs 1 month to absorb rubber and loose the oily surface, with last minute resurface crashes are the normal consequence of the first raindrops over brand new roads.
