I repeat bruising your back is not exactly what you want in a cycling race with a lot of climbing.
indeed.Parrulo said:well i think its time for RS to start sending paulinho up the road. he is by far their best bet for a stage
leipheimer and zubeldia should be enough to take care of kloden who's form after his crash is unknown
i don't know his gc standing, but he was in several crashes, too, and i don't know what his form is. this has been such a brutal race for the shack.Eric8-A said:If it's just bruising, hopefully the rest day can do Klodi some good.
As far as other options for Radioshack, what about Popovych? How far is he down on GC?
Dekker_Tifosi said:power when climbing because power comes from the back, which is bruised.
and kloden is just as skinny and muscleless so could be big problemDekker_Tifosi said:Interview today with Bruyneel. "The question is how to recover from this fall. He especially has pain when climbing, luckily the next 2 days are pretty flat"
Like I said, same injury as Gesink, no power when climbing because power comes from the back, which is bruised.
