Millar worked a lot yesterday too... You can't realy know but I think that with his experience Millar knows perfectly his body. And btw : he won a TT 3 days ago ...
Hard to tell when he got dropped with all the chaos today. It's just been a really tough race so far, only three guys have managed to make the selection two days in a row.theyoungest said:What on earth happened to Westra? Didn't see the stage today, but I'm quite surprised to find him out of GC contention.
I would say Millar wasted a lot of power today as well. From what I could see when the live video finally came up, there was a tremendous amount of work being doing by the chase group to cut the breakaway's advantage. Obviously Grivko was on the front end with a much smaller group, but I don't know that Millar will enter tomorrow would a decided power advantage because of Grivko's efforts today (Millar said he was tired after yesterday's stage, so that may be a factor to consider as well).Dekker_Tifosi said:Yeah, but Grivko must have wasted a lot of powers today. But it's true, he isn't that far of Millar either
I think that particular 'ride like a loony' strategy was mainly related to the shorter TT, I mean, I know it is not 50kms but you 14 kms pacing will play more of a part than the blast that was the CI TT. I reckon it was probably related to Millar not going hard enoguh in the P-N TT, rather than his TT overall, afterall he did win the Vuelta TT last year, his first really big win a whiletheswordsman said:My one concern is the new "ride like a loony" philosophy to Time Trials. By its nature, it means taking more chances and throwing caution to the wind. It worked brilliantly at Criterium International, but if he tries it every time, there could be some bad days. So if he has the option, does he take just enough risks to win, or does he go for the best possible time? We'll see. Actually, his claims of how smart he was yesterday got me wondering as well.
Huh? I think you mean Cadel, rather than BMC, at Tirreno.auscyclefan94 said:Tirrenno, TDU, GW just to name a few.
Indeed, after the Belgians failed to win Omloop, Kuurne, Dwars door Vlaanderen, E3 Prijs ánd Gent Wevelgem, they now also look to finish with no win in de Panne.BroDeal said:Two French, one American, and (if Millar peforms later) one British stage wins in De Panne. Interesting.
