Question The official debate: Should Contador have waited for Schleck?

Cant just discuss this on a race thread. Espcially since i expect some words to come out of Andy at the end of the stage.

THis is likely the major debating point of the tour.


Discuss.

Default Berto's Attack

Schleck drops a chain and the Spaniard attacks?!? We'll see how this pans out, no respect for the maillot jaune with a mechanical.

Will Contador feel guilty.

Does it matter that Schleck was the MJ.

I tend to agree with Sherwen here. I think it's entirely inappropriate to attack the MJ during a mechanical.

The long road is ripe with opportunity to beat the yellow, when you can't do it with muscle. This is a new era.
