Attacked laterAngliru said:How would you have tactically approached the scenario that Cancellara was in at MSR? How would you have handled it differently?
EDIT: Or sooner. Either he should have followed Nibali and Gerrans when Nibs attacked, or (if he couldn't follow them then) he should have attacked on the flat after Poggio. Then Gerrans and Nibs would have been completely toasted.
EDIT 2: Or have ice enough in his stomach to force Gerrans to pull in the final. The reason riders don't pull when with Canc is that he has showed that if others won't pull, he is happy to pull the others to the line. If he a time or two forced others to pull, and perhaps got caught, other riders would help pull, as to ensure to get to the line. But as it is now others can just say 'no thanks' and they will get to the line anyways.
