Are you **** kidding me.

No victory in over a year

Best performance in 3 years

And a random breakaway rider suddenly climbs faster than Froome to stay away

Supercombativo in the pocket even if some other rider attacks all the upcoming stages from km 0.0 straight to the finish line...

Better than Mortirolo and Dauphine prologue? Probably, I dno.
Mortirolo time was very good, but not great. If he'd started with Landa, he wouldn't have dropped Landa
Dauphine prologue he took 6s out of Porte. Today he took 40s out of everybody. This is the best single climb he's done since 2014, maybe even longer

Hope is not lost. Considering the record of Austrian indurance athletes contador might be the official winner of this stage in two months. ;)
Damn right.

Really incredible performance by Alberto today. Podium is well within reach. Idk, maybe even the overall if he stages an epic coup on Friday.

Come on, this is ridiculous. Yes, he was strong today, but no one really chased him. Something must go desperately wrong for those ahead of him for Alberto to end up on the podium and the overall win is simply never going to happen.

Anyways, probably what Contador did today won't change anything, no stage win, and no movement in GC either. :(
Just a waste of energy. I hope he doesn't waste more energy tomorrow so he has at least a remote chance of winning on Saturday.
I hope he doesn't wait for Saturday only to be 2nd or 3rd behind the breakaway or get dropped from the other GC contenders...
So, tomorrow more! Full gas attack from Carmona :cool:
