For some reason I thought it was Rosa working on the climb not Moscon, but then again I thought it was Moscon leading Froome up the final climb on Stage 3 and it was apparently Nieve.

Rosa led first, and on stage 3 it was Moscon pulling, Nieve just got back up to the front to pull after that.

True. That's what I recall as well. Moscon is so valuable for Froome atm.

Entertaining final. Big win for Lutsenko, some GC movement...Bardet and Nibali lost time, so I can't say that I'm too happy. well, there's always tomorrow...and the next day... :)
 
The camera works in the Vuelta, from year to year since I watched, is a constant reform to any editing and story telling technique known to human. Especially when having to deal with scattered breakaway groups with big time gaps from the main peloton, or uphill fast race in twisted short climb (which almost what it is all about), they often lost their way completely, showing the bend, or nothing at all, waiting from someone or some group to arrive at the empty spot then cut away. When you tuned in late, it's even worse. Wonder why. Who are these guys behind it?

We couldn't see what was happening as Froome attacked at the bend. Luckily we had Kirby there to make up what happened, saying that Contador couldn't live with Froome's attack :rolleyes:

where are the story about froome getting flat from? is it a case of sky weren't at the front so folk have put 2+2=5
I watched the footage back and he was just not in a great position coming into the climb. No flat.
it was raised earlier in the thread when we seen how tight the roads to the climb were it going to be a fight to get in a good position at the start of the climb, maybe sky messed up the approach

Haha, really? For the first time ever I regret sticking to other channel and missing his show.

Froome had a flat tyre
Is this true?
It was missing a "?". It was a question
well, when they started the climb almost the whole of Sky were no where to be seen, but the camera work was so crap and with Carlton f**king Kirby doing to commentary who the hell knows what was going on
Kirby should just shut up when he can't see anything, useless.

Froome's consistency in grand tours is remarkable. It's fair to say that the race for the recd jersey is over barring an accident or an ambush, he is just too strong.
after stage 5? Really??
Indeed, I wouldn't count out Contador yet either, loved how many of his fickle fans wrote him off after one bad stage :rolleyes:
