WTF? Forgotten about yesterday, where he gained a lot of time from a breakaway?robow7 said:Instead of putting their chips on Lance and then Levi, Horner now in the top 10 could likely have finished a few spots higher if not all the work they forced the guy to do. Anyway, nice to see Chris have a nice tour.
No, but they should have left Klödi to help him, you know, at least show some respect to the guy. You know that's what any other team would have done.BroDeal said:Yeah, the whole team could have stuck with Leipheimer and finished an hour back.

Leipheimer is a stronger rider than Horner, and has a much bigger GT palmares. It was a logical choice to support him, rather than Horner.

So I guess it is easy to go on a breakaway over the Pyreness mountains.ericthesportsman6 said:He gained 7 minutes in a breakaway. Without that he would have just finished in his normal top 20 fashion.
shouldawouldacoulda said:Ahhh I have to disagree. Levi gives a BIG RIP about being top 10.
I think the way his team rode today they may not give a RIP about him being top 10.
I think RSH made a mistake... They are also American and need to appeal to the US audience. With Garmin's Hesjedal really winning over some fans with his ride, and now being ahead of all the RSH guys in the individual classification... RSH may have made a big sporting, sponsorship and PR mistake today.
There's a big rivalry amongst RSH, GRM, BMC and THR to be viewed as top dogs in the USA... and GRM may be nudging past RSH after this tour. Maybe.
Ripper said:Ryder's had an absolutely fantastic tour! Not only in his GC placing, but his aggressiveness and panache ... at least he tries to race. He has been in 2 breaks, one of which after he was a known threat (and ended up getting caught), the other of which was the nearly stage long escapade on the cobbles. He normally can TT pretty well, so it will be interesting to see how he does on the final TT.
Ryo Hazuki said:it must be a bitter pill for lance to see his old youth rival horner at the same age doing better than he is, not only in the tour but he also won pais vasco.
