Good question. There has to be a reason. Was he more worred about a fellow countryman passing him ???. The Spainish press would love it !!! I'd guess its Ok doing it on the Cols in July but metres from the finish line of a Classic in April. Makes you wonder. Albeto's looking over his shoulder I guess is a "mind games" strategy giving the impression he has more in reserve to deflate/psyche out his rivals but Evans had a tankful in reserve this afternoon !!Polish said:

For your records Andriy wil not be starting at Liege.
We are freaking morons?Publicus said:You two (Polish and KBS) are freaking morons.
Astana's team for L-B-L looks pretty damn tough (this is provisional):
Except Alberto forgot the part about "Crushing Your Adversary"Moose McKnuckles said:He's practicing giving Lance "the look".
Don't have any idea what the hell you are talking about here. You seem to think he was faking which just seems stupid given what everyone was watching. I figure you are just doing your best to tweak folks noses around here, because that's just a dumb suggestion to make under the circumstances. What I don't understand is why you are bringing up my comment regarding Iglinsky/Vino in response. AC said his legs didn't feel great yesterday, so I suggested that if that was the case today he might work for Iglinsky. Apparently his legs felt great and the team rode for him. Not on the same level as your cockamamie implication.Polish said:We are freaking morons?
C'mon, you are the guy who hoped Alberto would work for Iglkinsky
in the Fleche and work for Vino at LB
It also appears you have not reached "True Alberto FanBoy Status".
You seem to be in denial.
To be a TRUE fanboy, one has to accept the fact that your favorite rider belongs in the Clinic Forum.
Nothing more moronic than fake Fanboys
Although True FanBoys are pretty obnoxious
Now this I agree with. I think L-B-L is his main goal. Obviously not for the same reason you seem to suggest, but because he hated losing and he's clearly got better legs than the Brothers Schleck at the moment.Polish said:Except Alberto forgot the part about "Crushing Your Adversary"
after giving The Look.
But really, why did Alberto turn around 20 times??
Is he that insecure?
Did it make him go faster?
NO WAY. It slowed him down.
Did he not want look extra-terrestial in the run-up to his REAL GOAL?
His REAL GOAL for the FingerBang RoadTrip = "La Doyenne"
Expect to see Alberto kick **** at Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
No turning around during THAT finish.
He might win by a BIGGER margin than Tyler did lol,
although Alberto's buddies the Schlecks will be competive too...
+1 was a little concerned with his performance..theyoungest said:... or hope for a quick recovery (not gonna happen). It's kind of a relief, actually. There's a clear explanation for his sub par racing.
Could be, could be.trompe le monde said:About Contador glancing relentlessly over his shoulder as he approached the finish line, my sense is that he was gassed and was trying to determine who would be able to overtake him as he didn't have the legs to sprint to the finish. .
The thread is not derailed lol.Mellow Velo said:Is Polish teflon coated?
A major race thread derailed with his continual nonsensical posts.
Yet he's still here.........unlike all the other trolls.
I don't get it. Why is everybody so fascinated with AC looking back? There is no way he would have won even if he never had looked back. The man wasted all his enegry battling Anton up the steep part of the Mur. AC isn't used to this kind of racing and ha learned, like Evans did, the hard way.Polish said:Could be, could be.
But what good does turning around DO?
It just slows you down.
And why turn aound so OFTEN?
Just seemed weird. Unlike Verbier for sure.
The thread is not derailed lol.
Alberto "looking back" was a major part of the finale.
It was a rookie error or bad acting or something.
And I am NOT saying Cadel did not deserve the win.
Cadel earned it fair and square. Very studdly. Very.
