if memory serves, zaka in the giro was showing great climbing capacity in the 3d week, but was literally a non-factor in a last time trial...BullsFan22 said:One of these guys will crack in the final stages. Maybe both will crack. It's a matter of who will crack less...it also depends on the descents. I wonder if Sunweb will try something on one of the descents to put pressure on Zakarin. Otherwise I'd give the slight edge to Zakarin, despite the 27 second deficit he has on Keldermann.
Dekker_Tifosi said:Zakarin was crafty, he couldn't have gone earlier. He first let Kelderman try and close down Nibali, so to test his strength, and then went when he saw Kelderman was already at his limit.
Smart ride, 15s is enough if he does the same on Angliru.
But I think his main worry for podium is not Kelderman, but Contador.
what was that about ? Just a test or a statement 'i feel good' ?Breh said:Status quo with Kelderman. Contador only gained 4seconds. 2nd place is only 52 seconds away.
That attack with 4 of his teammates on Ozalba was pretty funny. Reminded me of Monte Grappa this year.
