Froome, Wiggins, Contador, Evans, van Garderen(not top yet, butalmost).Bavarianrider said:Why are there hardly any TTers that can climb on such montains like today?
Really, there are like 50 really good climbers in the sport.
But there are almost no Tters who can climb a little bit these days.
close...but no cigar.Dazed and Confused said:could be, but the two TT's in the Tour are close.
I see, yes random stages put together, perhaps even the order who knows.rghysens said:close...but no cigar.
What I wanted to say is that it's odd that a 2nd tier preparation race in february includes one of the longest tt's in stage races this year.
Another prove that balance in race design seems to be completely lost.
Purely from the start and finish points and the distance, I would guess that there would be 2 climbs, over 800 meters of climbing and about 5 km of flat in the second Tour TT.Dazed and Confused said:(still no details about the two TT's in the tour?)
Possible, but I think Martin will be brutal on power routes.
Does anybody know the details of the worlds TT?
yep, that would be a bigger challenge.roundabout said:Purely from the start and finish points and the distance, I would guess that there would be 2 climbs, over 800 meters of climbing and about 5 km of flat in the second Tour TT.
It seems to be a GC rider TT so a few people can beat Martin.
It's a perfect ITT for Contador though.Bavarianrider said:The second Tour Time Trial is a mountain time trial really. Only up and down.
Even on his best day Tony couldn't win that. He'll lose lots of time on the downhills.
fair enough, not crushed agree. And I also agree with everybody that these can beat Martin in the 2nd TT in the tour, but what about longish power routes? Imo only Wiggo has a chance and only if he has the same form as last year. I think Cancellara will focus on other targets, Phinney just that little too "young" and everybody else are one step below in general. Anyway time will tell.will10 said:There's several guys who certainly wouldn't be crushed for a 1 min+ in 35km. Wiggins, Froome, Contador, Cancellara, Phinney, Evans, hell even Tejay.
JTL on twitter. Looks like he was TOLD to be bottle carrier...sounded a bit miffed that he,s being held in the blocks.postmanhat said:Just caught up with the highlights and a very decent showing from Josh Edmonson. 7th up the mountain yesterday and 16th overall.
Seems to be out of the blocks better than JTL. Is JTL still in training mode?
