Is there no chance of sagan holding on? Win another flatter stage and manage losses on green mt?

I would say misreporting is about 25 times more likely than Contador being caught and dropped by climbers like Bouhanni.

So Contador attacked somewhere, was with Nocentini at front with 5k to go, got caught and somehow missed the first group:confused::confused:

Well Nocentini is 16th. Perhaps Cobtador was "raptured" :D

i'm pretty pleased with my predictions - first and second and an "off-form" Nibali in 4th :)

but i'm not one to say I told you so, just listen next time :-)

SKY train for the 2 climbs, Sagan win and a daredevil descent all predicted. Gallopin winning the sprint of climbers was just poetry.

talk to you tonight, loves

He really doesn't need to have made very much progress at all to be favourite for 2 or 3 monuments this year.

Seems like he made a bit of progress in the off season :eek: would love too see how his victory unfolded in real time.

Someone backed the favourite 2 days in a row, so is now nostradamus, apparently.
