froome did show on the tele that he was at his limit yesterday. Everyone is talking about Froome 100%. Maybe the look of last year 2012 TDF, would be his base of 100%? He was strong at the TT and always like walking in the park in the mountain. IMHO, i think Froome might already be 85% or even 95%. But some one will say how do I know.. LOL. Of course I don't. None of us know. It's all speculation
Contador said today he'll be equal rival with froome come tdf. We can't really see how his TT actual form. In the mountain, he wasn't like he was dropped either. Unfortunately, Rodgers wasn't strong enough to hang with the group. What's the point of winning the stage when you got teammate with better placing for WT point? just to show Froome he can pass him in one week race with his 75% form? if comes TDF he can't beat Froome, what's the point?.
For him, winning a stage at Dauphine was irrelevant in the grand schema of winning TDF. He has won more than one GT, he doesn't need confidence boost. He is mentally strong and focus. TDF top step is what matters for him. And we all know, when contador sets a goal, no one can persuade him otherwise. I would reserve my view on contador until the fat french lady sing end of july.
LET THE BATTLE BEGIN. AND MAY THE BEST MAN WIN!
