He doesn't have to drop Purito to get a stage win. If there is no one else in front, he just has to finish before J-Rod. If Valverde can tag along, they can go 1-2 and Contador would be in the lead while only being a second ahead. Again, this is why Contador needs to team up with Valverde. It's going to benefit them both in the battle against J-Rod.LaFlorecita said:How is he gonna get the stage win without dropping Purito? Or is Purito gonna gift him the win?
I don't think he is able to do it. You can't just change something you've been doing for years.hrotha said:Well there's always a first time for everything, right?
He should call his pal Andy and ask him how he went about it on the Tourmalet.
Fun? I had dinner and when I came back it was still a large main group with Gesink on the front at 6km to go (for them).Timmy-loves-Rabo said:Who cares? It was still pretty entertaining. You can find faults in pretty much any modern day racing, it comes to a point where you just gotta find the fun where it is.
Err I mean, by all means keep complaining.
How does attacking in the wrong places (is he even?..) have anything to do with a race being boring?peacefultribe said:I don't really understand the negativity when Contador attacks and can't do anything with it. Or better yet, when he seemingly attacks in the wrong place. Everybody complains about the Tour being boring...........
I think you might be right. Alberto did drop purito, but purito still gets back to him (reminding me the battle between andy and alberto 2010 TDF). Maybe this could be a warm-up for tomorrow's stage, by did it through out the climb to wear purito down? Keep testing purito's mantle for tomorrow's stage perhaps.sultanofhyd said:The thing is he IS able to drop Purito, it's just that he is getting back. That's why Saxo tried that weird tactic today sending everyone up, they hoped to sustain the gap once Contador attacked but it didn't work.
i was joking that Valverde is so desperate for revenge for stgae 4Waterloo Sunrise said:Glad I know you're not daft enough to believe in a causal link there.
Froome has been the walking dead for a few days now; his race is trying to stay in the top 10, not the podium.
