I love seeing Sagan working as a domestique for Krueziger. It shows a lot of class and also respect for a guy like Krueziger who has often sacrificed himself for his leader even if he was the stronger rider like in 2013. This kind of selfless behavior is something we will never see from a guy like Contador.

Pantano sprinting to stay in touch with Sagan whilst he's not pedalling.

Who mentioned that Pantano was as good as Sagan downhill again?
His technical skills are pretty good but he's missing about 20kg. :lol:

Helps him on the climbs though.

I like him, but sometimes you just don't like a certain rider. Don't have to make a big deal of it.
I get the point of not enjoying a great cyclist with an overpowering team and luck win all races. But like I said, I just can't fathom why someone might dislike Peter, the cyclist, unless we dive into blindness and irrationalism or you don't like cycling at all. I'm not interested in that. Maybe I'm limited.

Placing Mollema in that list at this is stage is pretty unfair. He attacked more than most.
Mollema is a disgraceful wheelsucker. It won't be a single stage or 2 that will change that.
He's no more of a wheelsucker than a pletora of other riders in the peloton. Why single out two guys. Mollema isn't even the highest profile among wheelsuckers.

Which flag was that trying to take out Rolland (again)
Portuguese. Front group really could have done with having Zakarin to help on the flat. AG2R, Movistar and OBE will be very confident of bringing it back a bit on the flat if they need to.

Because I'm a dirty bastard and I saw that he might be dutch and wanted to touch a nerve :) Harmless. Certo?

Tiralongo at the front of the peloton to protect Aru's 6th place in GC.

Nibali riding at the front in the Sagan group for a possible stage win.

What does Astana want really?

Sou Português but Rui Costa is starting to piss me off. This isn't about being smart, it's about the fact that he doesn't work at all on breaks.

What does Astana want really?
Aru wants a podium
Vino wants a stage win and a podium
Martinelli wants maybe podium maybe a stage
Nibali wants the stage

Maaaaan, I am so drunk right now ... I apologise in advance for my future posts.
That's what happens when you play the "Astana Tactical Incompetence" drinking game.
I think someone should go and check on The Barb and their liver.

to the many asking what is Nibali doing.

this is a Liquigas attack . Sagan Kreuziger and Nibali are very good friends from the Liquigas period.
