Not the best TT, but still in 3rd.... Can he hang on?
I don't think anyone honestly could say, we've been in uncharted territory for the past week and a half. Of course there's a chance but he's only 2 stages away from a podium.CheckMyPecs said:What is the probability now of Yates blowing up at some point?
5 years ago, that would have equalled the best Tour finish from a British cyclist, and at the age of 23, just to put it into perspectivePricey_sky said:A shame he just missed out on a podium however 4th and the white jersey is a superb achievement. Chapeau Adam!!
True, but I think he has been on his limit for days now. Saying somebody has to attack lying on your sofa with a beer in your hand is a bit easy, isn't it? But knowing that Quintana was feeling completely ***, Yates should have tried something.hrotha said:
Maybe he was on the limit on the climb. He struggled to respond to the attack on the kick up to the line as wellhrotha said:So attack on the climb.PremierAndrew said:
Then go on the descent after all. The risk/reward ratio is insanely in favour of attacking when you're trying to get on the podium.PremierAndrew said:Maybe he was on the limit on the climb.

Riders have long been signalling the 'victory of death' virtue but it's always been cheap talk. A high GC position at the Tour is very desirable.Billie said:"Finishing fifth? No one remembers that. I want to win a stage"
Congrats on his fourth place The guy talks ****
