But there is a difference, today it was a short stage with only a final mountain, ideal for Alberto and today Froome was who attack and take time. So the difference is more than 4 seconds.
I said yesterday I hoped him to help Rogers, but it seem like podium in dauohiné is not important to Saxo, it is more important to show something from Contador or try to get a stage win...well, it os ok, It is a respetable decision, but Andy use to help in the same situation, and I consider that more gentle.
I was thinking about this today. As I see it, it doesn't make any sense for Alberto to help Rogers
- Alberto is a better climber than Rogers so Rogers would probably struggle to follow him
- sky do all the work, why help them? Tire them out.
- If Alberto and Rogers both follow the sky train, they will probably get like 4th and 5th on the stage If Alberto attacks there is still a chance he can win, and as we saw today Rogers just paces himself up the climb and finishes in a respectable position (5th) I don't believe Rogers would've done any better had Alberto paced him.

okay maybe you should realize Andy always sucks in preparation races. Alberto doesn't. And believe me, the team talked about this, and this was the team's tactic.
But I get it, you just don't like Alberto, that much is clear. I wonder why. I guess because he disappointed you with regards to clinic reasons (judging by your posts in the clinic)
