How fast do you think he will go? I bet faster than 2010, but not as fast as Armstrong at his best. 6.5w/kg maybe?

On Ax-3, only somewhere around 6.0w/kg or a little below I think, seeing as how it's early. On Ventoux or the Alpe on the other hand...8.6w/kg. :cool: :D
 
I jut hope we get through to Saturday with no more crashes or injuries. I think Froome is like a kid on Christmas Eve right now, he will explode the race on Saturday, really curious to see when and where he attacks from. And how likes of Contador and Rodriguez climb. I think Contador will definitely be a lot better than Dauphine, and he is undoubtedly a fighter, but not sure that will be enough. For Saturday, at least.

A3D is a relatively short climb(<25 min), so it should be a little above 6.
 
Silence is eloquent. Total dominance by Sky must have everyone stunned, disappointed or thinking clinic thoughts. Who cares. I found last year's Tour boring even though I admired what Sky did. Froome is more exciting to watch than Wiggins except in the TT of course and there is not much to say about the stage that has not already been said by the commentators. Sky - 1. Rivals - 0.
