Good post and Team Skyzakhstan should be asame of themselves. Riding their ass for a 6:th place or worse.TeflonDub said:When the gap was 15 seconds, Contador especially and even Quintana were bursting a gut taking turns at the front to build the gap. Froome was sitting seventh wheel behind Valverde and another Movistar (Erviti?) freewheeling, knowing full well that there wasn't nearly enough pace being set by his doms at the front to get him closer. And so he sat. And sat. And sat.
Sorry, guys, the crash wasn't the reason he got left behind. Spending his time on the radio calling Amazon to order some new domestiques while he lolly-gagged is why he got left behind. But maybe all that time on the radio wasn't all for nought, as he did manage to get some help from Team Skyzakhstan. Otherwise he would have lost 4mins.+
