Are Tinkoff-Saxo Bank Tactically Inept?

They have some interesting tactics mostly. Can't pick one sample and come up with such conclusion.

I don't think their tactics were weird by the way. They tried long range as they should, but they failed. Contador not being with the main group today also had nothing to do with lack of good tactics.
 
Their tactic was having Contador attacking and reaching his teammates in the breakaway (Fuente Dé 2.0). But Movistar cares more about podium than victory it seems...but Quintana wouldn't have beaten Froome anyway

Would have worked out if contador could have been first on the allos but he wasn't good enough for that. Sagan was waiting for him.

The majka thing is brilliant though
 
No they are the best team in the peloton tactically.
Crashing on a descent has nothing to do with tactics. To be honest I don't think Majka could've helped much, when Contador was chasing alone. Afterall, Pra Loup is a very short climb.
Didn't notice a similar thread for Movistar - how come that?

Create one if you want. Majka could have helped.
