contador has never bene able to push on his attacks. he would always cause a gap and then lose a little. but froome eases those gaps

A Danish site says Contador was angry because Quintana attacked when Froome drove into the ditch so that Contador had to get off his bike! What was the course of events?


The source is Contador. And we don't know about the crash becase was on difficult turn and the camera was behind the group.

Froome is mad at Contador for going crazy on the descents.

Since when can't Contador decide what he wants to do for himself? Froome is not obliged to follow Contador

Usually Danish sites don't know ****.

quintana attacked AFTER contador crashed. typical colombian style, crashes or flat tires, those are part of the game

How is my comment relevant to what you just said?

I see why movistar did it, i'm sure AC would have done the same if Froome crashed.

Are you sure Froome is mad at Contador? Or was Chris just
correctly pointing out that Alberto's attack was perhaps not
tactically astute at that particular time on that particular
descent?

Did Movistar really attack at that point? Didn't Bertie finally catch up again with them? Sorry, not watching streaming today but only following from the forum.

well based on his on road behavior and comments afterwards sure seemed he was a bit upset. All he needed to do was back off and go down at his own speed.

Berto wants to take risks that is his business.

you
are
giving
too
much
credit
to froome/


AC is like a wolf. he prods, retreats, prods, retreats, prods, and then retreats; giving his prey a false sense of security. Then he attacks. Thats the charm of AC.

The dawg was scared that AC will launch another attack after some tight corner, and he was forced to follow AC's wheel closely. This is what a wolf does to lambs--force them to make mistakes.
Cycling is interesting only because the line between the improbable and the attainable is not clear.

Wow! I also like watching Bertie's racing but you, my friend, is taking it to another level with your analogy. :D
