Not a word of congratulations to any of the podium finishers EXCEPT for his team that managed to win the team classification.
I had a little more respect for the guy but I think some of the Texan's arrogance rubbed off.
Nice job, Johan !!!
Sorry but I have to agree. JB has always been a sinister and childish pro and person. I cannot recall the exact stages but it was during the Indurain years and JB drafted Indurain for 2 separates mountain top stage wins in the same TdF after drafting MI for an hour or so each time. Sure a pro might do that once due to team pressure to win, but twice in the same tour. How shallow.
As a related aside, what happened to all of JB's wisdom and planning and LA's unparalleled skill and innate physical superiority during Grand tours. Having read blogs for the last decade and watched all Tours since 1986 I have heard a lot of rancour. But, in the JB/LA years the rhetoric was 'overwhelmingly nauseating'.
JB is the "master DS, he is so smart and calculated able to make stage wins out of very little opportunity". Yikes what happened this year.
LA's unsupported but routinely cited non-sense..."most tested, biggest heart and lung capacity, grit, toughness, never ending fight, ability to rise to any situation to win, a man that plans every detail and more so than any other competitor, one who outworks and trains more than most riders"...on and on. None of that helped him at all. Even when being pack fill (his own slanderous comments of other riders) for several days doing as little work as possible, he cannot win a stage...oh, after Horner leads him out for 40+ Kms, Horner still beats him in a sprint. How telling of a broken man and sore loser, just like JB.
