#LaVuelta, Stage 18. Peña Cabarga (5.82 km, 9.45 %, 550 m). Chris Horner: 16 min 44 sec, 20.87 Kph, VAM 1972 m/h, 6.70 W/kg [DrF].

I cant say anything about this stage without going full clinic
Where do you calculate that?

Using those numbers i get 7,1 Watt/Kilo (2peak power calculator)

Watch out for Scarponi in Firenze. Not great yet, but the form seems to be improving
Ture this. Italy will have a few weapons it seems.

Me love some grandpa action :p

Honestly though. Nibali, get it togheter man, you can't loose this..:eek:
He had to win it today. Now there's no chance unless he pulls a tricky move tomorrow, which I doubt. He's gonna get smashed on Angliru.

That could be a very crucial 3 seconds. Horner has to drop Nibali in yet another stage, so the pressure is on him. If all Nibali does is wheel suck, he wins. What a great race!
not if Horner takes bonus seconds, even though it probably isnt too plausible if Nibali does the same kind of wheelsucking as he did on Andorra.

It's just like Cobo and Froome and you kept on watching after those wins.
No no Cobo Yes, CF had illness. I believe him more than some 42 yr old who as never top 5 in a GT I mean seriously, what is more believable a CF who turns great at a very and I repeat very normal age or C.Horner who well I mean seriously he should have pushed his luck with his inj he would have won the TDF, how can you compare the time says it all 35 seconds faster than Froome was

Cancellara's abandon is the only reason Horner is not in red. What a great teammate...
canc abandon had nothing to do with the result. saxo and katusha were already ahead where his influence would have made a difference.


Also, I don't understand how guys can write off nibbles. Today was a day that he could play defensively. in the next two stages he now knows the time gap needed; and he can plan his race accordingly.

Despite all the noise made, jrod, valv, nib and roche were seperated by just 5 sec, and horner only made 25 sec to nib. GC battle today was hyped up too much.

valv is given same time as jrod at 2:13.


someone is not going to be happy with a 6 sec loss.

That ridiculous invented 6 seconds given because Valverde and Nibali were in front will bite in the end.

If the race was organized somewhere else than Spain or Italy than Horner would be in leaders jersey.

we have clinic to deal with one of the problems of the sport. it looks like one more section will have to be started to deal with the likely cause for the 6 sec issue.

sorry mod for bordering on inappropriateness

in the end, I don't think he will care whether he wins the Vuelta by 2 minutes or 2:06

it's obvious Horner will crush everybody on Angliru anyway.
 
So Horner 16'43" vs Froome's 16'58" (same time for Thibaut Pinot !) according to Eurosport ? It was certainly a "smoother" climb. Very, very impressive ! Barring any accidents the Vuelta is his. Nibali will probably try to bluff (possibly attack) in the Angliru but it's going to be carnage!

ok everyone, now look at this very closely:

This is the PRR section.

It doesn't make sense any more to have the clinic separately.
Join it with this subforum and save us from trouble.

I'm not sure what would be more appropriate for today's stage:
:confused:, :mad:, :rolleyes: or :(
