Well it didn't last long.One day and Betancur is back to square one :( A decent 55 place in this hard stage,but too little for his talents.

Maybe he will be in better shape for the last week, but if you miss a whole winter (i didn't watch him, but thats how it looked when he came to Europe in March) it simply takes too long to get in real shape.

13min behind on the first major climb. Just as expected and as I said yesterday.

I think there are a few members here that owe me an apology :cool:

well, at least I hope that Ryo will finally keep his pie hole shut :eek:

I'm sorry about your teeth. But you should stop chewing rocks.

Name your wager for Betancur getting a top 10 on a stage. I'll suggest loser doesn't post in this thread for a year.

Do you realize how "loserish" your proposal sounds? Top 10 on a stage?

Poor Fatancur. Now I feel sorry for him as his own fans degraded him to a top 10 stage category bets as they are hoping that somehow, he will (by accident) get a top 10 stage result. Unbelievable :cool:

He must go step by step.

By accident anybody get a top ten in a stage, you must be competitive.

When a was following him in Neila behind the brush car i though maybe he will never would get his past shape and progression. Now, I am not sure, but will be difficult. Or maybe he is not so good, I dont Know. He has lost weight, but he need to lose more. If when lighter he is no getting result, he could be a good domestique , no more for the rest of his career.

Bananito is in his best form since last years Paris Nice.

Him and Hesjedal were the two guys rolling up other riders when Astana went mad on that climb. Wouldn't suprise me if he was just badly positioned at that point in the race and therefore missed the split

No climber is that likely to win an individual stage. Indurain didn't win a mountain stage in his 5 GTs and he was clearly amongst the best going uphill. No, I'm not comparing Betancur and Indurain.

It's not like I'm a huge Betancur fan. But dude's raced 40 days so far this year. That's a lot. He wasn't training for the Giro GC. He was always going to lose at least 4 minutes to everyone in the ITT anyway. But I still think he's up for beating 180/190 WorldTour riders in a stage. He's not much of a breakaway rider, so that probably means coming in with the lead group in an insanely tough Giro mountain stage. If you find that so ridiculously easy that you could do it by accident you should really stop talking trash in internet forums and try out for a pro contract.

And all I said is that if you think getting a top-10 in a Giro stage is cake then by all means...
 
Re: Re:

Hesjedal and Bananito were climbing faster than Astana at that point of the climb, so I thougt in the descent they could chase... but there werent any important descent at the begining, and Astana never stopped a little.

Astana was clever, people as Hesjedal or even Betancur is better to be far as soon as possible.

Betancur looked strong? So why did he finished 15min or so behind the winner?

Quite honestly, I never seen anybody so blindfolded and delusional :cool:

It's funny how you got it wrong. There is just no such comment.
People were sticking forks into him lately, which is simply premature.

Considering where he's coming from it was a good day for him. Again, noone praised it as the performance of a world champion.
