In Basso's defense he did what a domestique is supposed to do in the mountains and that is bring the pain to his leader's rivals. At the end of that he had done such a stellar job that there was no one left to drop, only Contador and himself were left. In any other world that would be considered a job well done. I only wish he had been able to sustain it a bit longer.
