couldn't watch the stage live today but this is the impression I got today!kenk09 said:Contador wins! Froome has peaked too early!
Good thread guys.
A good battle between Froome and Contador, Contadors face at times suggested he was struggling but the fact he stayed with Froome only heightens expectation of a great race next month.
Now Contador just has to find a way of dropping Froome, it's one thing being able to wheelsuck and save energy while the other guy pulls you up the slope but it's another to ride away. I still feel the Tour will boil down to the TT and Froome's advantage there. One final point, hasn't Froome actually rode less this year? He missed TA and Crit-international compared to last season and rode Catalunya instead. He may not burn out as many are hoping. I'm now reading people comparing Froome to a bully? Oh dear...
On a positive note, what a great ride by Adam Yates, this boy is a big talent cutting it with the best! Was only a few secs behind Nibali.
