Froome was the best, most exciting, most positive GC rider in this tour. Most of others are garbage wheelsukers. How can someone be a Quintana fan? Blhec.

+oo

No GC attack today? Seriously? :lol:
Pathetic rest of the field.

Froome well deserved, the guy came here with a reason and executed.

proves once and for all how overrated nibali's descending is as I've been calling here for years

A lot of the things you've been saying for years have been proven wrong, and it doesn't exactly look like he's trying at all. Plus Olympics
nibali definitely tried today but he couldn't follow descenders with real skills and more dare

Yeah, because he's really going to risk a crash here with the Olympics looming. :rolleyes:
wanna speak again? :rolleyes:

Reckon Pantano and Izaguirre would have dropped Nibs on the descent in Lombardia?
I'm sure Nibs has lost all descending ability in the space of 6 months..

Uhm, what happened confirmed what I said. Why would Nibali risk crashing in a descent for a mere Tour stage? Olympics is his big goal and he has a family and kids. He clearly didn't push it.
 
worst tour in years

I seldom saw such little GC battling. Even among the podium and the top 10 there was barely any fight. Most place wins were either made by falls (Mollema), bad luck (porte), a hunger knock (aru) or an explosion (Van Garderen).

What a fail Tour. Absolute 0/10 for me

It's been the worst Tour since the Wiggins Tour, and the second worst since some of the Armstrong ones. Let's hope for better times soon.
the 2012 Tour was miles better than this one. Miles.

Huh?
The sprints were interesting this year, the GC action for the podium wasn't over until the end, some memorable moments. What did 2012 have apart from a brief moment where Froome attacked Wiggins?

I wouldn't bother arguing with him, it's a lose cause.

Nibali clearly didn't want to risk it given the Olympics, just look at what happened to Dumoulin...
