WTF
Porte dropped on every major climb last year is invincible in front the peloton after only 12 months.He closed the gap effortlessly. Well done SKY swimming raining.

Vincenzo I am sorry. I am afraid you can't win this unfair fight.:mad:
If your're going to make posts like this after every stage can you at least keep it to the clinic

Nibali during the past days's interviews always showed to be very confident and calm and today it showed it on race mode!
Chapeu to him for bringing some madness in this boring Tour.

I know Agnoli is going with him to Astana, so that's one attacker to help with Vincenzo's crazy descent attacks, but does Astana have many good descenders on their books at the moment? I know Roman is good, but he's leaving isn't he?Gasparotto and Maxim are both pretty good going downhill, right? But I'm guessing not on the same level as Capecchi and Sagan?
Brajkovic is amongst the better descenders there is and as you say we got Gaspa, Maxim there too. Noone quite on the levle of Sagan though

Today there was a moment during which Sagan was almost dropping Nibbles on the descent...crazy :eek:

The thing is he has to play to his strengths where he has the potential to gain minutes, and if he couldn't do it today, it's less likely he can gain massive time in other stages. That's why I think it was a good move. However he started late on the descent, I thought Sagan was already pulled back and he didn't have any luck finding good breakaway riders, so he found himself in no-man's land on the last climb.

If he would've tried in the last descent he would've been caught as he was in the Dauphiné, since it wasn't steep, technical and not long enough.
Brave move by a man with B*LLS!!!! If Basso and Szymd could apply any pressure they would have? Almost useless :(

Like Tejay, what has he done for Cadel???? All he does is fight for the white... :(

Nibs is trying to Win, if he loses well he will have given it his best shot, Chapeau! If Cadel and others had had the B*LLS to go with him we'd be saying what a Brilliant move. But he couldn't do it alone :(

Still RESPECT for being an attacker and animator even if it didn't work. Sure beats trying to get 2 seconds like Cadel IMO.

Hope he doesn't pay for it tomorrow!

No regrets! Did you know he was just 2 Km from the last descent when he was caught? If, if, if... :(

Yeah tomorrow we'll know if those domestiques are good enough to help The Shark.
 
It's right aiming for the yellow. But it's also reasonable not to spoil your chances to get a podium, which would be a huge upgrade in his palmares. He's still a relatively young rider.

I enjoyed his attack today.

Did you guys hear what Wiggings did when Nibali was caught back??

When Nibali was caught Wiggins made a gesture with his hand to Nibali shaking his finger. Kinda like 'don't do this again, don't attack again on the decent'...

Wiggins is such a ****ing **** but **** like that won't intimidate Nibali that's for sure!

Edit: Heard it actually happened at the finish..

no offense to Cadel but not very unimpressive so far. He said he would try to take time at tomorrow stage. But I doubt anyone can escape the SKY train. If tomorrow Basso and Syzmed still could not get their acts together for Nibali, I will give up hope on them permanently.

Wiggo may be strong, but he is a jerk. Starting to remind me of an unmentionable Texan.

Wait until he runs into Contador's accelerations LOL. But Alberto has to much class to be engaging in a mouth and shaking fingers.

Hopefully the gesture just stiffens Nibs resolve! He will keep trying, it's who he is Bless his attacking heart :)

that is what I heard too.Supposedly Wiggins was angry after he read Nibali's interview about not impressed by him. So today is a good time to revenge a little bit. He is just a d**k!!

Wiggins is mentally fragile of course. That is very encouraging to Vincenzo when he will keep on attacking him , tomorrow!

Sagan should just drive next to Wiggins and pop open a beer. That would be good TV.
Sagan has a bell on his bike, he should just ring it all the time behind W driving him crazy:D just joking

Yeah I think that's hilariously funny actually, his bell :D Together with the victory salutes and the Tourminator bike it's so refreshing to see a guy just having a bit of fun.
