can I get a job as a DS now? with Garmin-Cervélo for example?la.margna said:How can they let these 4 guys go away by 12 minutes?
No problem in a flat stage, but here today... I mean, no more flat terrain, just climbs (ok, mostly not very hard), but Samoilau (MOV) and Brutt (KAT) have tended to be decent climbers...
Brutt tomorrow will really depend on how well he recovers tonight. A big effort like that could cost him.Mellow Velo said:Brutt terrain tomorrow, too.
When is Taylor Phinney due to finish?
I guess BMC and Astana will work tomorrow to get rid of some more competition before the time trial. And Bobridge is the most likely to crack.movingtarget said:Is Brutt much of a time triallist ? Bobridge looks well placed. I think Samoilau is an ok time triallist.
It was a white jersey that went off on that corner, went half way up the hill, then rolled back onto the road.Bavarianrider said:Nah he was in front on top of the last summit and at the end of the downhill he wasn't anywhere anymore. There must have happened something
I think we all know the answer to that.Dekker_Tifosi said:But are they?
I did watch the race.auscyclefan94 said:The onus is on them to keep the time gap in check. They actually did reduce the time gap a fair bit. Watch the race troll!
Why would Euskatel want to relinquish the lead like that?
why would euskaltel care for a breakaway group?? it's your team that failed miserably (again)auscyclefan94 said:Meh, maybe I expected too much from euskatel as hrotha is right in a sense that euskies didn't have a gc rider but I thought they wouldn't of let the gap go out so far.
Yes, Euskatel were never going to control the race and some of the other teams had no reason to chase which is normal with riders in the break.Sasquatch said:I did watch the race.
If Euskaltel thought they had the manpower to control the race, they wouldn't have let the break go out beyond 11 minutes. They knew they didn't. So they bluffed to try and make other teams do the work in chasing. They had a stage win, the yellow jersey and know it's a tough week to win the overall, so they can take a victory already.
Not all teams come into the race thinking they can win the overall. They will be happy with a stage win, the yellow jersey for a day etc and that's exactly what Euskaltel would have been hoping for. The fact that Castro was feeling under the pump proved he didn't have the legs and they weren't going to waste their energy to chase when they could get another stage win later on in the race.
It's not a trolling. Instead of telling me to watch the race, maybe you should learn a thing or two about race tactics and what teams goals could be.
If they wanted the overall win, they wouldn't have let it gone out so much. Fact is they will be leaving this race with great satisfaction and for the main contenders going for the win, it's their fault for potentially missing the win by not asserting authority on the peloton.
Holly ****, hopefully he 's not seriously hurtMellow Velo said:It was a white jersey that went off on that corner, went half way up the hill, then rolled back onto the road.
Probably out, in that case.
I think we all know the answer to that.
Expect them to start, then stop and stare at each other.

Bobridge will have to fight hard to hang onto the bunch tomorrow though.
instead of staring yourself blind on the status of a race, look at the guy who finished 3 places behind Brutt there. Stef Clement, good enough for 3rd at the World ITT few years ago (and now eternally ****ed because of injuries)hrotha said:The Circuito Montañés is practically an amateur race though.
Wow, he rode a good TT as an espoir.Ryo Hazuki said:1 Kai Reus (Ned) Rabobank 17.58
