"Second place is not good," said the Great Alberto Contador...well, Thibaut isn't Contador. But he can leave this race happy about his progress. Much better than Occitanie.A very good team of psychologists must now convince Tibo that losing Dauphine is nothing, that he's in very good shape and he's gonna win Le Tour.
Contador was way more active. Pinot did nothing. Ok, he attacked once but too late. He also would be an underwhelming winner.Yeah, don't think I'm the only one who finds Martinez as Dauphine winner kinda underwhelming. This was a bit like the 2014 Dauphine finale, with Pinot as Contador.
