Very good work also today by the squad. Maybe a little too
Dunno, better to stay at the front and burn some matches, than risk a crash (hate them :( )

Here's one funny close up for Fleur :p

Tomorrow saxo is gonna do something. I'm certain they will, narrow roads in the descent. Perfect chance.

so what did all of them say? impossible? that's the only word I can recognize.. lol.. I don't know italian or french or spanish..
Roughly this. Sorry if I'm completely off.

Nocentini: From a champion such as him, you have to expect it all. Although I think that the double will be very hard. (can't understand) I hope that Pozzo wins.

Montaguti: (something imperceptible) It's already very difficult to win Il Giro, so trying to win the Tour after, impossible.

Mori: ...Alberto, I think, is one of the last true champions, so there's that possibility.

Pellizotti: We have seen in these last years that it is very difficult, not to say impossible, but he is a great champion, and set as his objective the Giro-Tour double, and I trust in his will(?).

Chava: I do think it is possible. He set the bar quite high, but a rider such as him has the ability to surpass it.

Antón: If there's anyone who can do it, it's Alberto.

I was watching the rai multiple camera online thingy and one cam at some point just showed 5 minutes of Berto slow-mo's :D
Sadly, I wasn't watching that ! :D

Contador climbed the last pass of the day sat on the saddle most of the time, doing the pantani climbing position from time to time. Strange behaviour. Can't wait for wednesday, I'm still not 100% confident about his current form. Need confirmation.

He's gonna start doing a combination of seated Froome attacks and Pantani attacks to destroy the field. He will save his own superior trademarked AC style of mountain climbing for the Tour.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed. He was spinning that very low gear, sat all the time... it reminded me of Port de Paillères 13' to be fair. :(
Those signs are very important, remember the Tour 13' when he said he was already having bad sensations in Corsica, he was doing his head tilt and was not out of the saddle on those first few climbs of the Tour.

He really looked like Froome Today. But given that it's not his usual style, it's a bit worrying.

IF he is back to 13' form something must have gone wrong in the prep, or his head is/was not the righ place..

I really don't think he has timed the form wrong due to incompetence.. He is way too experinced for that..

Only question for me is if the new team setup and all the internal disturbance wth Tinkov/Sagan/Riis has affected his preperation or his head too much..

We shall see soon I guess..
