It's the one team where riders can't have an ego that's half the size of the directorsBest Director: Patrick Lefevere, hands down.
It's not just the masses of wins, it's the attitude amongst the riders. They want to be part of the "Wolfpack" and it shows.
The only other team that seem to get close is Mitchelton Scott. The motivational talk Matt White gave towards the end of the TDF was epic.
I like the fourth one. Not only did it cost Lopez precious seconds to be boxing and yelling at the poor spectator feeling the wrath of Spiderman but he also most certainly could have used that anger as a fuel to get back to the group he was in when the crash happened.Worst Tactical Move:
First mention: Movistar chasing down its own riders for the purpose of nothing.
Second mention: Nibali and Roglic looking at each other at the Giro because they think that they are pretty.
Third mention: Froome reaching for food in a TT bike on a descent.
Fourth mentions: Lopez having a fight and forgetting about the race.
When did that happen?Third mention: Froome reaching for food in a TT bike on a descent.
I don't think the DSes had much to do with that.Fourth mentions: Lopez having a fight and forgetting about the race.
Quintana gained all his time on the crosswind stage and stage 2, both flat stages and lost time on most mountain stages. Also going into la Vuelta everyone knew Valverde was going after the podium as he really wanted it for multiple reasons. He said after the Vuelta that although his family, friends, and fans were dreaming of him on the podium in the rainbow jersey he couldn't allow himself that dream even though he really wanted it. Then you have stage 20 were Movistar's radios went out in the rain and they didn't know the time gaps to Pogacar until the fans started yelling to Valverde on the final climb. He said he had tried to help Quintana stay on the podium on that stage, but when the fans started letting him know much time Pogacar had and that he was in danger of losing second, it then became a matter of preserving his own spot and not worrying about his teammate.Yeah, Nibali and Roglic just looking at each other was a huge mistake. That said, back then most of the forum was in agreement that the race was between the two, so it was understandable at the time.
Movistar at the tour were just ridiculous all around and really some of the Quintana vs valverde actions at the vuelta were just as bad. We just kinda forgot it due to Quintana gaining a lot of time in that crosswind stage.
