You have definitely struck my funny bone.Damiano Machiavelli said:I am sure all that limping on the pedals, the loss of time, the gradual improvement in his pedaling was a ruse. It was all a cunning plan to explain his third week performance. If he was a little smarter then maybe he could have come up with a ploy that did not involve losing time, but Contador is not very bright. Bob Roll told me so.
I am only surprised that Lance did not try this technique.
Higher cadence, harder training, more focus.... and crashing in the first week to assure himself the yellow.
See. If you say it like that, then it becomes believable! People will buy twice as many yellow bracelets.
