Tailwind in the forest? Mmmh, that is interesting. Doesnt offer much help in the forest...Race Radio said:Yup, as I have said, and the article says, the more exposed last 1-2km does have a headwind.....but the the climb is 21.5 km. The video clearly shows a tailwind for the majority of the climb
What also is interesting is the peloton didnt ride the first 8/10 km of the climb. Quick Step 'paced' the bunch as Chavanel was in front. Team SKY was even able to grap a white lunchbag. What does that do for the actual complete climbing time? Would that make the comparison with Mayo's idiotic time in the Dauphinee TT useless? Not even mentioning the little mistake in math, you know, the 12% stuff.
Also, not even mentioning - now I do - Froome was able to call home in the middle of the climb what clearly is sign he was not at max effort. What is the name of the Sojasun DS who called BS on that?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFM7wcMiPdIRace Radio said:Froome was actually 2 seconds faster then Indurain on the entire climb. Not too surprising, Indurain was a TT guy. He does not hold many climbing records and rode most of the way in a group.
What do you make of Moncoutie being only 50 seconds slower then Froome?
Please. Watch that video. Watch the Hautacum 1994 too and then come back. Not a climber. Omg. I'll do you even a favour, watch the ridicilousness from this moment on:
Moncoutie was a climber, in a TT. I have him 3 minutes down on Froomes last 16K though. So, who has the correct times? That time puts him on par with EPO fuelled - sarcasm - Charly Mottet. Woopiedoo.
