Fine, I'll open the thread again. You lazy *******s...
After the stage; maybe one of the interviewers?LaFlorecita said:I wonder where Alberto is gonna attack..
He doesn't need to do that if he has one superday but I doubt he'll get that day in this vuelta, maybe on bola delo mondo.The Hitch said:He said he attacked today not just for today but to make future stages hard too
It has the gradients in the wrong place for modern cycling. The first half is hard, but the second half is spoiled by the short flat section after la Huesera and the two downhills.jens_attacks said:well i actually love the lagos,its cycling history is special.gradients for modern cycling?not so much.probably as in the last years,a breakaway will take the win.... that if saxo bank won't go ballistic again
hopefully froome will come back to life tomorrow
That's not too bad actually, as long as it is not 2-3% for a few km's like it was in that early mountainstage. It might mean earlier attacks than the last 2km, like we will see again the day after, because of the steep gradients.icefire said:It has the gradients in the wrong place for modern cycling.

Yep. If we want to see more than that we need to go back to the 80's. Lejarreta took more than 1 minute on Hinault, but we won't see anything like that again.roundabout said:Apart from Heras spanking the rest in 2000, I can't recall a single occasion where nr 1 beat nr 2 by over 30 seconds.
Probably yet another scrap for seconds or even a group sprint of about 3.
if he keeps hanging in there and sprinting in the end i guess i will spend a lot of time in the clinic...airstream said:I think Alberto should try to do something otherwise Joaquim again fires from 300 meters to go, take up to 10 sec by pure time and bonus. Though, very likely everyone will save oneself for Pajares tomorrow.
