Does somebody know what happened to Mas and Landa? I know they probably not in top shape, maybe they didn't ride full gas?
Hindley is a classy climber and has obviously worked on his TT, I think winning last years Giro has given him the confidence and self belief to go for a result against Pog and Vinge, if anything goes wrong for those 2 it wouldn’t surprise me to see him winning the Tour.Going to awesome to see Hindley tested if he brings his top form like the last mountain in the giro 2 years ago. Might be like Cadel
Vs Contador and Chicken following for a few stages when no one else could. . Might be easily best of rest
it's probably still not perfect, but Herregodts already said on day 1 that the ITT would be his main goal of the week, as they invested a lot to improve their time trial setup.Note that he’s doing this on a Cube bike. With a half decent set up we’re looking at a possible podium here.
Would love to see him on a Specialized (without the additional head sock) or Pinarello. He has the motor to do special things.it's probably still not perfect, but Herregodts already said on day 1 that the ITT would be his main goal of the week, as they invested a lot to improve their time trial setup.
Not sure the GC riders will make a move. After the climb there is still 14 km's to go, and you also have that flat section before the summit. Wonder if someone dares to attack if the chance is high he'll be caught by a 40 person pelotonTomorrow's final climb, a little harder than the roadbook suggests. Will be disappointed if we get zero GC action.
De Gendt, Politt, Boasson Hagen, Zimmermann, Greegard and Heinscke 3 minutes ahead of the peloton.
This is a strong break!
Since when? He's been quite unlucky this season
He himself was saying last year he felt his level was 'suddenly' below that of much of the peloton and was thinking about his future.I don't know since when exactly. I don't think it's just bad luck, it's either a serious decline or him being the same and others just being better.
And I don't mean to be mean, that's just what I think about his level and what one can expect from him.
yeah, but given Wright's pre-stages interview (saying that he sees a chance to win), all in all, it's probably still most likely that they are working for himBahrain likes to pull for nothing, too.
It looks too hard for Wright, and not exactly suit Landa either, if any stage ever does.
