La Flo.. let him voice his opinion. I think discussion of who's popular can be simply settled with how many poster contador thread got compare to Froome. :p Doesn't matter if the comment is against contador. The fact is "if they write something in contador's thread, that means contador is a popular topic, since they have to make a comment about it - good or bad" :D:D

Didnt do his job fully. Should have been on the phone to Katusha, BMC, AG2R and any other retards making negotiations.

Better do that now though.

Great tactics today, this is exactly the kind of stuff they need to do to beat Froome. Contador a minute closer to yellow.

Contador one of the best tacticians on road bike racing, while Froome still a rookie.

He was on the phone 100 per cent. It's crazy how many teams think they have interests to protect. Without that help vroome would've lost 2 minutes easily.

It's set for carnage till next sunday.

SAXO ON FIREEEEEEE!!!!!!!!...

Stannard's interview on tele: he said he saw saxo move, and he tried to follow but Froome can't react that quick and left a gap. Hmmm, skyborg loosing some oil here??

Rogers' said they weren' plan it on the morning. It was a split second decision. THAT'S HOW THE REAL TOP GC TEAM SHOULD PERFORM. FIGHT!

1 or 2 minutes down? Of course it's really important.

But the most important thing is that we now know Contador won't give up although i already knew that.

Contador is a fighter, he will never give up. Sounds very cliche but that's the kinda guy Contador is.

You have to be in the front of peleton to give the order at he right time..

The may have talked in generally about the possibillity -but Alberto must have given the order.

He is the one they had to bring along -and normally does not like sidewind..

He gave the order i am sure...

I bet Sky's alarm bells are going off now... 2:45 prior to the worst of the Tour against one of the worst possible cyclist.

This one is a must.
