I never felt the attack of Nibali and Contador was dangerous. You could see Sky was just pulling the watts behind to keep them in check and with the flatter finale you know Froome would do a sprint just before that to close the gap.DFA123 said:They have to attack every day though if Froome is going to crack at some point. He didn't look great today - and he may well look worse tomorrow and the day after, before really going pop at one stage.Matteo. said:
I dont think Nibali was that strong either, but he recognises the need to make the race hard every day in from this point if he has a chance of winning. Perhaps learning his lesson from the Giro.
Never in real trouble.
Unless they manage to weaken Sky somehow this is never going to work. Wrong tactic.
