Yeah, Froome can't be stopped unless he crashes. Finito.
The way it is looking now he could walk down the Allos and still win. Seriously doubt he will be taking risks on the downhill even if it means losing 20-30s here and theredoperhopper said:Contador/Nibs provoke crazy need-for-speed downhill from Col d'Allos, pref. during hailstorm, inevitable SkyFall (MSR-style) finishes Vroom for good
Replying to your bait, Zam, just to give you the fuel for imagined persecution that you're looking for.Zam_Olyas said:Nibali fan and Contador fans wishing together now..singing kumbaya.... lol
I don't think so - if there was an alliance then someone should have bridged to the attacker so they could work togethercellardoor said:Did we see the much rumoured alliance yesterday? Contador, Nibali, Valverde and Quintana all attacking in quick succession.
Yesterday gave me hope, not that they're gonna actually crack him but that they try.Kwibus said:We'll see in the alps what will happen. So far Froome is dominant, but you never know what will happen in the Alps.
We need Ryder and Nibs to go for a long one and Bertie and Valverde and TJ to go with them.Miburo said:Yesterday gave me hope, not that they're gonna actually crack him but that they try.Kwibus said:We'll see in the alps what will happen.

Movistar wasn't aiming to crack anyone else, they were 1-2 froome. Ok this won't work but in the alpes the terrain is absolutely perfect for longe range attacks.
A lot of will depend on piti i think. Will he risk a podium to do a long range attack?
That's a good point and I was wondering the same thing when I re-watched it this morning. It seemed like attacking one after the other didn't work, but if others had joined Nibali (the longest lasting of the attacks) it may have had more of an effect. Valverde did sort of try and bridge to Nibali but all he really did was bring Nibali back.Punter said:
