I was going to put this question in another post but I thought it would be better to start a new one.
Phil Liggett and Co were claiming that Alexandre was being betrayed by his team because they were the ones chasing him down when he made a break but personally I think they were just making mischief.
I remember the incident where Alexandre had been seriously dropped on a climb but fought his way back on the decent and caught up just in time for the next climb. When the next climb started he attacked straight away and it was Jan and his other team mate who bridged the gap to the scorn of the commentators but realy was Alexandre being for real. Was he realy going to escape anyway and if he could have stuck out the move wouldn't he be grateful for his team mates company and assistance?
Personally I saw it as a bid for minor fame on Alexandre's part rather then a serious move. If he had it in him he could have helped his team mates rather than blowing up.
I don't doubt that there's some rupture in the team but the commentators were just mischief making in my view.
I don't want to sound too down on Alexandre as he's put some excitement into the race and he's certainly giving it his all.
