Stephen Roche was great on EuroSport today. Harmon invites him on and sets up with a question which he was supposed to answer with: "No not at all, its been a great Tour".jmspinto said:One of the worst Tours I can remember! Even in those Armstrong days, he had the entire team around him, but he still made some good attacks on the climbs anyway!
This year, with 100 k (????) of ITT, ASO should have put much more mountain top finishes to make it even, this way the only thing Wiggins had to do was put a lot of time on ITT and then drag allong the team all up the climbs ...
So Harmon asks: "So Stephen what do you say to those who are saying this Tour is a bit dull?"
Roche: "I'd say they're right, it has been very dull".
Good on him. He didn't waver either when pressed. Said he was impressed with Wigins but that was it.
Good on him. Telling it like it is.
