Obviously Froome would have dropped Nibali anywhere he wants.
But does that say that much? Not really.
Nibali is a great rider but he's not the guy who will win the tour in the next years. Too limited.
I'm sure Froome could have dropped everyone in each mountain stage in the tour, yeah the great climbers like Wiggins, nibali, a sick evans, a young van garderen, vdb2, rolland,...
Very impressive, right?
How great Froome is in the climbs will be answered in july. I think he'll try and keep up but fail.
Froome had some 'weak' moments though in the mountans but somehow he overcame it in 10 seconds, pretty impressive.
If Contador drops he really drops then, not evans level but still.
