Indeed.

Come on. That was a fair win.

Navarro knew he had to attack to win the stage and Yates knew he could rely on his kick to the line. They played their cards.

Oh, another 3 weeks having to suffer one of the Yates clones with their ridiculous mixed Brit/Aussie accent. Pure cringe.

Gained enough for what? To win GC? Yeah, sure.

Anyway a nice try by Navarro.

Two of Thomas' pro wins have come in France. The overall of Paris-Nice and the overall of Dauphiné.

What could be the third?

Trust me, there's really no such thing for anyone who grew up outside Australia. It's not really an accent that can properly acquired past a certain age, it can only be lost.

Pretty unsatisfying seeing the breakaway rider caught in the last 50 metres. With regards to people commending Yates for an intelligent ride, it looked to me like he was comfortably the strongest rider all the way up the climb - I have to wonder if he could have challenged for the overall if he'd actually tried.

Even on this absolutely hysterical forum that win being "disgusting and disgraceful" is pushing it.

Of course there are other important aspects such as the ability to recover or not have bad days, and of course luck but if Thomas could put altogether and be able to stay on his bike, he might not be a winner of the Tour but could very well be a contender until the very end. This of course if he leads and I repeat the best team possible to be if you want to win a Tour.
Although the guy doesn´t have any great results to show in terms of GC wise and already being a 32 year old cyclist what I think that differenciate him for others "wannabe" GC materials like Dennis is the fact that the guy is a really good climber in a good shape and I think thats the most important factor to win a GT.



Thomas is not one of the best climbers by any means, there are at least 10 better in this year's Tour.


well I would say that he is destroying them in the mountains at Dauphine (Nibali, Bardet, Yates, Martin and Zakarin)
Edit: Martin is te only one who gain time on Thomas in the 3 mountain stages so far (2 sec)


Not much of destroying today? :rolleyes: And it will be much worse at Le Tour.
