Farrar just gave up when he saw he was completely boxed in, at least that's how I interpreted it.HoinkDoink said:Still not convinced with the OPQS lead out, they havn't lead Cav out well this season so far, was way back today.
Surprised Greipel didnt get better than 7th, he looked to be in a good position.
Well done Goss
Farrar is still nowhere
You can see him sitting up hereLaFlorecita said:Farrar just gave up when he saw he was completely boxed in, at least that's how I interpreted it.
Not me. I want to see him dominate. I want to see stunning displays of speed. Monstrous "come from behind" wins and powerful "just rode them off his wheel" wins. Wins with and without support. Uphill, downhill, big bunch, small bunch. The lot.cineteq said:Lame excuses. Wanna see more Cav beating...
When Cavendish wins the first thing he does is heap praise on his team for making it possible.manafana said:dont blame your team in public like that, they do such good job for him so often.
But doesn't this say everything about Cavendish? Lavish with praise for his team when he wins and petulant when he doesn't.forkboy84 said:When Cavendish wins the first thing he does is heap praise on his team for making it possible.
Is it not true that his team were disappointing in the leadout today? Do we actually, as fans, attack riders who speak openly & honestly to the media? Do we just want automatons who merely mutter empty platitudes every time? Also I could be wrong but I don't think he criticised the entire team, I'm sure he thanked Steegmans? I could be wrong, I admit I wasn't paying complete attention to his interview.
The thing is his emotions are genuine when he enthuses after a win or when he praises them for their work after loosing because of his own fault, some on here are unable to accept that and prefer to believe it is just PR, therefore in the same vein I would much prefer to hear a true expression of his frustration than some false PR statement. It may well have been ill advised although true but that's what a lot of fans like about him, as they say he wears his heart on his sleeve and that's why his team mates are willing to ride for him time and again as there's more up's than down'scineteq said:But it's hard to sound genuine when he just does it as PR. I'm rooting for Greipel, Goss and Sagan to teach him a lesson.
Agreed, I keep a list of people I consider to be class acts and Cavendish is not on it.trevim said:I think Cavendish was a bit out of line: obviously his team wasn't great but just yesterday he got the leader's jersey thanks to them. He should have kept those critics private.
Anyway Cav was never a diplomat or a class act
