Froome is not a specialist for shorter TTs.

Heck, two years ago he wasn't a specialist at anything ;)
If anything I find his time ridiculous considering he went full throttle the days before.

Well, to me Tirreno clearly delineated the Tour #1 favorite. More precisely, he stays the same, but confidence is growing up. Nibali positively surprised. Gott watch Sir in Catalunya to discuss about that. Looking forward to next stage races with big guns' participation! :)

Dumoulin spent a whole day in the break yesterday and was just 9 seconds slower. And how about Andrey Amador?

Yeah, one day, on a day which he was going to struggle either way anyway. Froome has been good in every stage so far and has a horrible time trial position.

Froome has a horrible position on any bike. Regarding Dumoulin, I don't see your point.

What makes you more tired, one day of going in the red or 3 days of going in the red?

Aerodynamics are not as important during a road race as he can hide behind the Sky train anyway. During a time trial however it is important...

I know dude I know :( But let's not think about that right now at least we saw him on the podium:):eek:
Actually he isn't that much slower than he used to. At least not in seconds. It's just everybody else that are much faster than him in 2009 for instance.

I was wondering if Amador had been getting a bit of drafting from the motorbike :p - it did seem rather close in the footage, but you never know with foreshortening. Great ride from him anyway.

Was a really good TA overall. I think we've been really blessed with some good racing this year so far with only a couple of damp squibs. Bring on MSR!
