I'm not in the slightest worried. Contador convinced me last year, he won't make the same mistake anymore as in 2013.

Getting dropped by froome made him stronger, mentally.

The giro will be over after the first big MTF.

Thats a huge question mark for me how he was skinnier in Andulucia than now, it should be the other way around.
Maybe Escarabajo is right, he might need this weight for the double, god knows

As Tinkov is disrupting his own team the best he can, I'm not holding any high hopes for the already difficult double. But I'll enjoy watching him race, as long as he does :)

Is there any explanation for Rogers getting off yet? Other names are mentioned with illness but Rogers is always 'had to abandon'.

I'm not worried about Berto for the Giro. However I am worried about TS :(
nada story about Rogers. Which makes me curious. What actually happen with him. Did he crash or sick or like Froome - race leg MIA?. TS seems to be disarray i bet. Poor result keeps continue. I just don't get it, it seems very hard for TS boys either the star or non star to win anything while sky seems to score win easily. I bet this makes Oleg's head exploded since Brailsford has the bragging right. Nico roche is smiling ear to ear now. We need to see some spark of light from TS. Dunno, either Sagan win something or some body win something.

I wouldn't say he needs to be that skinny, after all he shouldn't be in top shape at the Giro, but he should definitely lose another 2kg.
No he needs to be in 'top' shape at the Giro, which means better than he is now, recover, and get back up there at the Tour.

Is that Contador alone when the echelons formed and if he is,why they bothered to send a team in Catalunya?
They could have sent him alone and get the same result :confused:
yes he was alone the final 43km of the race. Paulinho was the final man standing before that. Majka and Basso were vomiting and Majka has climbed off, Rogers has climbed of with no explanation to date. The team is in disarray..... They did look Very strong in the first few stages.

Yeah because they knew beforehand everyone would get ill :confused: & lol at that baiting question "is that him alone?" Yes, that's him alone, and you knew it.
No trolling here,you are too suspicious.Interesting that Sky was having the same health problems last year.

Something must be wrong with their training too,Majka was ok and i was expecting him to beat Richie in Paris-Nice,but he collapsed.Sagan was looking ok yesterday,but towards the end of the race he was spent while Stybar and G.still have something left.
