back in 2005,the roles were the same.
even if some still believe heras was untouchable that tour(especially because of the controversial positive),it wasn't the case.he could not get rid of menchov at all
that's where the tactics of manolo saiz proved decisive.and the strenght of liberty seguros too.
heras attacked on penultimate climb of colladiella but get rid of menchov only on the descent.after that,he was waited by all of the blue guys sent up front.
katusha is of course stronger than what was left of rabobank back then. still i can't see other chance for alberto to drop purito.he has to play some tactics,today they tried nicely even they failed.tomorrow the profile will be better for those.
i fully expect a showdown
rumour is that the ghost of menchov still appears sometimes at night on pajares...
