Euskaltel keep the team jerseys. If Astana had let Tiralongo stay out front rather than drop back to chat to Nibali then they could have taken the lead/.

WTF, you sure about that. Nibali was nearly rider of the day no one expected him to do that I don't care who says they did they are lying.

He as been gradually getting worst and worst and then does the ride of a life he ad Horner in trouble dude, if he dint attack he would have probably been fine remember he went early and Horner did not chase straight away.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing but it could have been different story today, Horner never cracked Nibali, Nibali cracked himself.:D
Right on, Nibs turned himself inside out. Horner just feasted at the table.

Huge respect to Nibali for his efforts. People criticising him are no doubt the same who hate Valverde and Purito for not attacking. Big effort from Valv to hold it together when he looked done and dusted.

You don't have to be so happy about it. He tried everything, it was a heroic effort, but predictable he would crack tho.

He probably has to thank Moreno for his time
moreno really set the pace very high in the beginning of the climb.

then nibali had forced up the pace.

If those stupid kids were not throwing their bodies when horner attacked, then we might have seen the duo break the 43 mark.

Oh My! What a battle!! So happy for Nico Roche...he survived.
and that was all he had to do to maintain status quo.

I just hope that saxo wont ask him to ride the next tour, and let him focus on the vuelta.

I felt very bad to see nibali suffer.

why the eff was fugslang not coming back to up the pace when nibali attacked? tiralongo, who was ahead of fugslang, came back to fetch him.

And when the 2 astana riders had joined nibbles, why were they not setting pace in the front?

Though I am happy to see the 41 yr old win, i think astana tactics lost them the podium position, both in team classification and overall.
