Neither did Nibali. He celebrated the win in the last meters, he had no intention to try to increase the gap and there were no bonus seconds. This year you get 10 seconds for the win but the point is Nibali and I bet Contador also will try to exploit any weakness Froome will show and we all know he is weaker when it comes to unpredictable stages, rain, descents, attacks on the flat, classics type of racing, positioning and bike handling.Singer01 said:he lost 2 seconds. i don't think he was tossing and turning all night worrying about how to make it up.cellardoor said:But the fact is that Froome did lose time to Nibali on that stage, so if anything it should be an example of where Nibali can gain this year. Realistically, it's going to be small chunks of time on stages like that, but it all adds up.
