Weird that a guy with no help whatsoever can't beat a guy who has 8 leadout-men.kurtinsc said:The point being that Thor needed those points and a Cav relegation in order to win the jersey since he couldn't beat him in a head to head sprint?
And it's a points competition, not a "best-guy-in-the-last-100-metres-of- completely-flat-stages" competition. And he didn't need cav relegation to win the green jersey. In stage 21 this year Thor Hushovd played it safe into a 6th place, as he saw that he couldn't fight for the win and had no desire nor need to fight for a 3. place, which he definitely would've made if that was required.
Most of the green jersey winners throughout the years has won quite some points in the intermediate sprints, this year Cav won like 6 points vs Thor's 28. Maybe Cav would have a better chance if he didn't suck at everything except from sprinting and whining.
Going seriously offtopic here, but whatever.
