Nice Alberto, hard to say if he saved himself or not but in face he looked worse than in stage 5, maybe still a little pain.

Now survive sunday, and he can rest :)
 
I think he passed the test with flying colors. He was obviously in pain a few times, but rode right on. The big losers today are Porte and Aru. This was their opportunity to shed him and they couldn't :). Venga Alberto!

But the pain should be over before the TT.
With a week ahead , we will be optimist. Perhaps less his opponents , Berto has.time toi recover

Alberto passed the test today with flying color. I'm not lying when i said.. my heart was beating so hard when I saw Aru attacked and saw a little gap until Alberto slowly close it. ufffhh..... I know today wasn't as thrilling as first 4 stages, but... ufffhh.... I'm relieved. I was expecting that contador might loose time. But he didn't. His team is a weaker than astana and sky today.

Porte .. lol. He is definitely banking on taking time on ITT. When did he attack? close to the finish?? coward. :D At least Aru has the ball to try to attack Alberto, and failed. I wish there's stupid crash from that damm spectator, we would have seen Alberto attack again!

Survive tomorrow and there's pretty much nothing until saterday.

But he has to be careful about astana's team, they're gonna play out landa and cataldo.

It's crucial that kreuziger and rogers get better. But contador has also sky who won't let them ride either.

Haha, cycling has got its very own 'Cristiano Ronaldo'. This acting is bloody hilarious and I can't believe some are buying into it. There's f'uck all wrong with him. Let's get that straight. It's like his leg excuse all over again.

Yep, and those doctors that signed the medical report are all part of the conspiracy. Get real. He might not be too badly hurt but there is definitely something wrong with him. Same goes for his injury last year.

You're cute :)
 
Big smiles again on the podium, he is Happy :). One more nasty day to get through and then some rest. He should be good by the ITT. Aru and Porte must be saying....geez if we couldn't get rid of him now, when are we going to be able to?

Porte is surely keeping his powder dry for the TT now, as for Aru who knows? He needs to take time on Alberto and Porte as he will lose a fair amount on Wednesday.
