It's his own fault, that's what happens when you're not in the front. But yea let's blame aru and bad luck.

With pink jersey, Aru might surprise everyone tomorrow. He might god knows does a monstrous ITT in his life. And with god knows what, either alberto hurts his shoulder again or not, tomorrow is nothing but certain. I kinda disappointed though that he lost his jersey today just like that *snapping finger*

Even though I would incline to believe that he will got his jersey back tomorrow *finger crossed*, but so far this Giro is nothing but surprises. Who will think that Aru after 2 days back to back struggling is now in pink with 19 seconds ahead of contador? Contador fought to the tooth and nail and gained time up on Aru until 3.2km today, just to be involved in another crash again and lost it all. (and he is not even on the side of where the crash happen. He got the wave again!!) Gosh he is been fighting the luck. It's like doing the double Giro-Tour is hard enough to achieve, now he has to be thrown with all the bad luck along the way to conquer it. Geezzz. No wonder he is thinking of retiring soon.

I havent watched only two stages this Giro and in both of them he crashed...not gonna miss any stages any more
Exactly me too! I think it is safe to have a real life on these boring sprint stages, and they have been the worst ones for him :(
Lets hope he is alright physically for tomorows's TT

I don't think Contador will win this Giro. Something else will happen for sure.

Don't get your hopes up too much, tomorrow is soaking wet, with the confidence gone on a bike, Alberto will not get the pink back and will lose a big chunk of time.

WTF is your problem?

the only blame is on the stupid 3 km rule on a rainy stage.

and no. i wont blame position of bertie there. he just was on the wrong side of the road. if he was riding a bit more towards right, he wouldnt have got caught in that crash.

Also watch how well the team had placed one rider behind him to hand over the bike. he was standing without bike for barely 3 seconds.

And why does a crash have to happen the only time he is not in the first 5 spots of the peloton?

Oh come on, dude. I know I can be bad when it comes to overreacting but this is too much, even for me.

Contador was sliding on left butt cheek from what I saw. Crash happened when he was under the trees so no idea if he contacted his left arm. When he's sliding he's holding it in the air. Here's a screen cap.

Contador worried about the inflammation in his shoulder and the bruised left leg...i guess we will see the defensive Contador in the next 3 days

Excuse me, what the **** is this? This is the thread to talk about Contador, not the Contador Fan Club. If you can't take it, log out.

Contador, con un golpe en la pierna izquierda: “Es lo que más me preocupa”. http://bit.ly/1Gu1Q2J #Giro
Seriously, he should just shut up, he doesn't need all these theatrics.
But why does he act like that this Giro? I've got the impression he changed the last 1.5 year in terms of playing with his rivals and the media. Big champions like Alberto should act like champions imo.

It's not just this Giro, he's always sandbagging, just ask Taxus :p

Miguel Indurain was well known for feigning weakness when he was strong and vice versa.
