Best classic rider in tactics? Yeah, no. He sucks wheel, sometimes it works, sometimes it fails.
Valverde has probably only been a domestique once or twice in his life. For Freire, who criticized Valverde after the WC this year lol.
Wc is not Liege,this course suits him.There is not medal or anything,only top step so I dont think he would be happy with podium
When did it fail?If we dont count 2012,it failed only in Fleche in previous years.Liege 2010 wasnt that case he didnt lose cos of wheelsucking.
Why he should be a domestique?he never didnt have a better rider in Caisse than himself,he was always a leader unlikely Leipheimer.And this season he was domestique for Costa in Suisse,without him Costa would be lost.
