Why accelerate when you can just ride at a constant tempo? That's fasterRed Rick said:If he could've taken a lot more time then he was doing, sure there was.PremierAndrew said:No need for froome to attack porte and mollema with no stage win available and the TT tomorrowRed Rick said:Events, interpretations, wishes, extrapolations. Obviously, in the dream world in which we unfortunately don't live in our favourite rider always wins if only he'd stayed on his bike, hit peak shape, or yadayadayada. We won't know what would've happened, I just know that I assumed both Froome and Quintana would have been stronger compared to the rest of the field. Maybe that rest of the field is stronger. Maybe Froome couldn't bother to drop Porte and Mollema.
Only assumption I'd make is that Contador would be 'up there'. Wherever that is.
