So basically Astana traded a certain Landa stage win and the KOM and a shot at the overall victory for like a 30% chance that Aru will win the stage. Makes sense.
Well Landa won't be on the team next year, they have to think of those CQ points! ;)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ quoted for truth. I think I *actually* feel bad for Landa now. Landa complaining about Contador trying to create fighting between him and Aru, well I think Astana did a fine job of that. Good lord that was hilarious!

7. Rules apply to AC too.
Yeah and the rules say 9. Sorry kid, always will be 9 and may be 10 soon
No it's actually only 7. He was disqualified from 2 for doping. You know that surely.
 
Congrats to Alberto, a great 3 weeks and played it perfectly. I appreciate why fans of his say it's 9 but official records only say 7 unfortunately, just like Armstrong now has 0, obviously don't wish to compare him directly to Alberto.

Anyway chapeau to him, it should be a great Tour.

Can I have a recap of the last couple of hours, please? How come Bert's behind?
Either he had a bit of a hunger knock or he rode very conservatively to save energy. Either way he was in no real danger of losing the Giro.

lol, got dropped by a group to ride alone and save energy....... the comedy by Contador's fanatics never stops

I'm about as far away as a person can get from being a Contador fanatic buddy. It's all this "OMG Contador failz" crap that's ridiculous. Not for a minute was he in danger of losing the Giro today and anyone who thinks otherwise seriously doesn't have a clue.
Well, he did fail today. he is clearly not the strongest climber in this Giro and if Landa wasn't held back this could have been different result since everytime he was allowed to go (Angrilu, Finestre) he completely cracked Contador. This is worse than TdF 2013 win. GT won because of TT, without winning a single stage, the only difference being that strongest climber was held up by other team, which adds to ridiculousness of the entire situation
With that logic, Wiggins 2012 was a fail. Makes sense. In fact, that was even worse because Wiggins TT was incredible and Froome waggling his finger at Wiggins on every climb.

I'm shocked at the stupidity of people in this thread. Why would Astana ride for Landa if he is leaving?
Right, why let the guy who is CURRENTLY on your team try to win the Giro, or at least another stage and the blue jersey. I'm shocked at the stupidity of people in this thread.
