me and taxus4a will easily find guys to talk without florecita, xray and sirius cat. but you have big troubles with skills of сilivized communication. you attempts to monopolize the thread with trash talk like 'don't talk to them' are laughable.

The fact that I use the same arguments is false. I use very different arguments. And discussion with I_Love_Cycling about Froome's and Contador's styles confirms it.


STOOOOOOPPPPPPPP!!!!

Enuff already!!

I think Contador might do something in this stage



According to gilbert the descent at the end is really technical so i think Contador is obliged to do something ;). Maybe together with voeckler, valverde, purito orso.

I don't see any reason besides hiding your true form for not doing it but Contador is not that kinda guy. Besides if by some miracle he has the yellow jersey there's a TTT next stage thus he'll most likely lose it and giving Froome a mental hit that early would be a great thing. Obviously i'm assuming Froome won't be able to follow :eek: The descent will be crucial.

And that's also a great thing about sky, it doesn't matter if they've the yellow jersey or not they'll always ride. They only have one game, they could play out Porte in a stage but i think they'll never ever do that. It's all about Froome.

Edit: I forgot Sagan of course. Contador needs to be with Sagan at the end of the climb and try and follow him in the descent.

Putting Froome on a constant pressure is advised imo. He might make a mistake, try and get him out of his comfort zone. He forgot to put on a jacket in T-A stage 6 for example. That stuff can make you lose the tour.

I hope he will - that would be cool

Are Contador and the Spanish gc-guys good enough descenders to take a gap in a 5 km descent against a 30-40ish peloton? Seriously?
