It is so painful to look at Rabo at the Tour right now, I have to switch to the women's team to avoid going into depression.
Go Marianne Vos!
Go Marianne Vos!
Yeh right. That's why the first group consisted out of like 30-40 riders?Escarabajo said:The crash happened at the back of the peloton, and as you know, if you are a GC contender you have to be at the front of the peloton. So there is more than just luck to the crashes. Just saying. Having said that, I also hate to see GC contenders go down.
Allthough I think they should've send atleast 1 contender to the Giro I don't agree with you.profff said:bright idea from rabobank not to send any GC contender at Giro and put all the eggs in the same basket at tour de france.
now gesink , mollema and kruswijik all almost out of competition
I am very happy for the team management, that it is always a benchmark in cycling.
Ok, but I'm sure a lot of them were also affected by the crash, but not held back too badly and managed to return.Lanark said:More like 80.
Definitely agree on Schleck - his teammates got his head into the race temporarily but no way was he going to be a factor, especially with another 5minutes (or more) he is going to lose in the TTs. Only Hesjedal, Scarponi and perhaps Valverde, but they were still only really podium contenders.Roude Leiw said:Who of the real contenders is out this evening? i think actually none, schleck said himself that he doesn't want to be team captain, gesink? TGBM ? top 10 perhaps, but that is still possible for them, i don't think that more (ie podium was a legit goal)
frenchies are whining the most with perraud and rolland, but even them, i think top ten maybe, but still possible. if they finish 1 min or 15 min down on wiggo as 9th, what real difference does it make....
