Phinney looking good for silver, the other guys have fallen back. Contador throwing his hand up, he's not very happy.

Mendrisio 2009. Wiggins said afterwards that T Martin was the real silver medalist and Larsson doesnt deserve his.
That was just Wiggins being Wiggins. Larsson didn't slipstream Fabu, he only used him as a pacesetter. Wiggins was passed by both, and couldn't keep up.

Edit: Contador isn't going that bad. 2 minutes off Der Panzerwagen and Phinney is a decent TT for him.

Goodbye Lombardia. Contader really weak on his comeback it seems. Will be interesting to see if he is back to his best next year.
I dont remember any "strong" rider coming back at top form after ~1 year absence.

Basso won the Giro 1 year after, and Valverde just on form at the end of the year and he will suffer at the first half of the next year because of intense racing programme.

Alberto started racing 1.5 months ago.

He were never a favourite for lombardia anyway - a black horse at top form.
