That is because he has a very weak team, and sometimes team do not even work for him, so he has to make attacks to even create some opportunities.Michele said:I dont completely agree as until last year he used to ride on his own into some crazy attacks which are very nice for us tv vieweres/fans, but not ever very productive.
Maybe it shows Nibali is also also extremely nice to his teammates, he wants his teammates to achieve the best personal result possible. I am sure they go through this with Nibali.Samson said:How can you critisize someone who's been consistently (if we leave out stage 10) there with Nibali unlike other teammates?
Show me one who has said thatMiburo said:Seriously people think Nibali can maybe get to Contador 2011-level?
And i thought i was a fanboy...
Yea i mean nibali is really crushing the mountains lately...
Majka, evans, pozzovivo are really feeling it...
That ITT was amazing of nibali but for the rest he hasn't showed me any improvement in the mountains in this giro
Of course not, Nibali is progressing and Alberto is declining, it's like saying Alberto is better than Lance because he beat Lance in 2009 (I know bad example)SafeBet said:They'll both go for the TdF next year and that should settle it.
Why do you think I'm discussin the overall value of the riders throughout their careers?LaFlorecita said:Of course not, Nibali is progressing and Alberto is declining, it's like saying Alberto is better than Lance because he beat Lance in 2009 (I know bad example)
Yea why would we care about the past? Past means nothing these days. Guy from the gruppeto in the past can win a gt nowadays.SafeBet said:No.
I said TdF 14.
2011 is past. Why should I care about it?
Asked who is stronger between him and Contador, Nibali says he doesn't know but would like to measure his strengths against him.SafeBet said:Why do you think I'm discussin the overall value of the riders throughout their careers?
I never even mentioned this, nor has anybody else.
I care.Miburo said:Yea why would we care about the past?
Yes and Majka said it wasn't even hard Froome would be 3 min ahead of Nibali by now, he isn't really that strongMiburo said:Yea why would we care about the past? Past means nothing these days. Guy from the gruppeto in the past can win a gt nowadays.
Keep talking big. I bet you did it too in 2011 "oh contador wasn't really good in the tour last year, nibali can take him".
A domestique of Contador can even follow Nibali. How scary...
You were right. Congratulations You smug *edit: that wasn't very nice*SafeBet said:I care.
It's just not the issue we're discussing here.
We're just hoping to see Nibali vs Contador soon enough to be entertained.
And that's the last post I'll write in response to you or LaFlo. It's impossible to discuss anything concerning Contador with you both.
I'm still waiting you to say I was right about Nibali beating Contador in T/A ITT btw.
