    Popo most aggressive???

    I thought they would have given it to Solar (sp?) for his ride. He left Popo in his wake. I guess it's who you know.

    I think Popo initiated the break and therefore was off the front for longer than Soler.

    I'm not sure, but I think the length the rider is in the break is a big factor. I wouldn't have argued with either choice personally.

    Very small factor. It is the guy who attacks. Attacking three times all on breaks that fail is more important to this than being in a long break, even if you start it and are the last one left.

    It is an award intended to reward attacks, not to just reward successful attacks.

    Yeah,

    Soler really did not attack until the Galibier. Other than that, he sat back behind the lead group.
