So the boys from Radioshack still knows a thing or two about TT'ing. Do we know what team they will send to T-A?

this race had new organizers this year and they proved to be complete idiots that know nothing about cycling as was to be expected . . .

this time trial is way too long for the climbing we had :eek:
Should have just renamed the race Contrarrelógio ao Algarve...

what a stupid race. Might as well do a race with only an ITT. The rest of the stages proved to be completely irrelevant to the GC.
Good performance from Michal K.
As far as radioshack go, they are specialists in winning team GCs that no-one apart from their PR seem to care about. I don't know what's it with this team. THEY SIMPLY CANT WIN.

Team could go in with a very strong TT team at T-A and try and wheelsuck their way to a win.

no need to put it this way "wheelsuck their way to a win." If you're a strong time trialer then you win in the time trials. Its not that you don't want to attack in the mountains. You simply don't need to or you don't have the ability to. And anyway they will get beaten in the TTT by some other team anyway since they can't win anything be it a TTT,ITT,GC, sprint etc.

very good itt by uran, very happy, henao's itt improvement truly is incredible
It doesn't seem to be a TT where too many riders bothered, given the huge gaps in the top-10 already. Uran is 10th, a minute down on no. 8...

Just a pointless parcours when the race leader can finish 14th on the final day tt and completely drop out of the top 10
