I wouldn't say that Porte cracked but more so his team did. He never blew up, he just had to manage his effort with all the attacks so that he didn't crack. His complaints seemed more out of frustration than being upset with his rivals riding their own race. He can't really expect to anticipate having the assistance of his opponents.Jancouver said:Wow, honestly, I didn't expect TLMRP to crack and lose this one. We all know he can't keep it together over three weeks but to lose Dauphine with a minute to spare is just pathetic.
Nice rides by birdsong and dannyboy.
