Nothing will happen on this descent, I don't get why you guys get so excited for no reason.
because jongh said this morning on belgian tv they send a guy up the road to check the weather and should it rain they will try and force the race :rolleyes:

obviously not this descent, but the next one let's hope
Even Contador goes full kamikaze and takes 4 minutes on the last descent, he would still get dropped by the end.

What damage? They could easily let him and many others ride on the descent without taking any risks.

If Tinkoff is in the mood, they could put Froome into trouble on this descent. Or hopefully on the descent of the Lers.
 
The reason you atttack on the descent is not to gain time but to put pressure on your opponents. Don't give him time to rest, eat, drink. See Pereiro and Arroyo going full gas on the descents towards La Toussuire or Contadors attack on the Sarenne descent.

What are the GC riders supposed to do? They've pretty much no dom upfront and sky still has the whole team. It wouldn't have worked for sure.
