Froome and Sky are unbeatable when they have luck and they are killing cycling because of it. The only way to beat them is to have a team of the GC guys work against them.
If Froome wasn't there, Movistar would be riding just as defensively.
That's right because Quintana would be in yellow so of course they would defend ;)
So Sky aren't killing cycling. Modern tactics as applied by any team strong enough to implement them are killing cycling.
No

Movistar and no other team has the weapons Sky have so they wouldn't be able to defend it on the level Sky is defending it at.

another stage for the escapers. Sadly.
Isn't it great that attacking is rewarded?
Sure, but in the mountains you would like to see the favorites at least duking it out for the stage win more than just once :rolleyes:
Blame Sky. It's their fault. They are killing cycling. If you attack, you have Thomas shutting it down. Thomas is the 2nd est climber in the race behind Froome.
lol no he is not
Considering Quintana/Nibali/Contador can't drop him, yes he is.

Froome is growing weaker with every day. Nibali on the other hand is rising and Quintana is keeping up. There's a small chance that the yellow will change before Paris.

There is 0 % chance that yellow will change.

Other than the first MTF, Quintana, Valverde and Nibali have all been stronger than G. I admit though that he is so strong that he can shut down most moves.

Froome is not getting weaker unfortunately. He would get weaker if he didn't have Thomas doing work for him.
