More talk than action these days, thats for sure. Panache is now mostly a word.
There are times now when the TV is in great danger.

It is just a pure satisfaction from well done work. Though I can imagine what Sky boys thought. Something like: ' Damn, why the hell everyone is so weak??!" Froome was able to sprint on the verge of lift-off on Peyragudes.

I don't think so. Scarponi looked well only compared to Nibali who literally presented 2nd spot to him in the third week since Gardeccia the Shark lost to everyone in top-5 on the climbs. Scarponi shouldn't do anything extraordinary to lose to Contador 7 minutes. There is much between them surely, but not so much. Scarponi gave a great result, but did he show anything really spectacular? NO.

Wow, so 99.9% of the riders are cowards, according to your logic? Can you specify where he could have taken more time then if you don't mind...

rujano got mononucleosis, he hasn't touched bis bike from giro until recently. which is actually a good thing as he gave his disease the time to leave the body entirely, unlike many other pro's have done

cuando se invitará coldeportes por el tour. coldeportes llegar con el b team en giro(atapuma)

when coldeportes will also be invited to tour(pretty good chance), coldeportes will come with their b team to the giro, which means no duarte for sure.
