Most GT contenders peak for the third week. It's risky not to. If it was AC in NQ's shape then Froome was done for.damian13ster said:bala v said:Well honestly, Quintana looked like he have much better recovery than Froome, in his last 2 TDFHugo Koblet said:When has Contador (or any one else for that matter) proven to have better recovery than Froome?Jspear said:Froome will NOT win the Tour, Olympic RR or TT.
The Tour will be won by AC. Watching this years TdF, I'm more convinced then ever - Someone who can climb just below the level of CF, but who has better recovery and is smarter can quite comfortably beat Froome over 3 weeks. AC going all out for the Tour can accomplish this.
The Olympic RR will be won by someone who climbs well, descends well and can sprint if needs be in the end. The TT will be won by one of the specialist.
Quintana was peaking for 3rd week. Froome arrived in top shape.
It is not an indication of better recovery
