it's a shame CQ doesn't give some1 the whole picture isn't it?del1962 said:In 2008 TDF Timetrial Stage 20 - Froome was nearly 2 1/2 minutes ahead of Nibali, and on the Alp D'Huez stage Froome was over 6 minutes ahead of Nibali (and no Froome was not in a break)
nibali was 23 in 2008 and was doing a giro-tour double, he finished 11st at the giro while working for pelizotti and had some good performances in the mountains there like for example on the monte pora stage and in the tour he still finished inside top 20 while once again not being a team leader having to work for beltran who was kicked out of the race and pozzato.
ofc he was fading towards the end but it seems only normal.
now can you please remind me where froome finished on the 08 tour GC wise? And how far ahead of nibali did he finish all the other mountain stages? And the other time trial of the race?
