This could be Dan Martin's year. OPQS are a strong team and might have given Martin that extra 'attention' for a GT.noddy69 said:I dont think they tried to catch Aru- Froome let him go and the only reason the group caught Froome/Porte group was the slow down as Froome didn't want to tow them to the top.Rollthedice said:They didn't expect Aru's nuclear attack so they let Landa and Henao rest thinking, quite right, that Thomas can handle Richie, Contador and Quintana. Mont du Chat will be a different ballgame.
Aru wont get the leeway to do it again as on that form probably the danger man and called it out on the wrong stage. Contador too old, Quintana not on it at all,Porte and Martin look dangerous but neither of them have form for winning over three weeks....leaves Aru( we wont mention the frenchman-no chance), who announced it too early in the tour. at least that's how I read it.
