He got caught out badly but looks like he was on a bad day anyway. The stage turned into a tough one because of the hard racing. Maybe the last three stages plus the rest day were too much for him. Some riders hate rest days because of the way their bodies react the day after. After the previous stage I was 60/40 positive that Rodriguez had the race won. Contador just hates losing and you have to give him kudos for the way he rode.Don't be late Pedro said:Feel bad for Purito. He always seems to have a bad day somewhere along the line. That said Contador's tactics were spot on and Katusha's were, shall we say, lacking.
