Tactics are all about what risks you want to take and clearly Lotto bet on Cadel having no problems and wanted the stage win with Popo. It worked 50%, no problems for Cadel but no win for Popo. If Cadel had a mechanical or got dropped it would have been a big failure but I guess they were willing to risk it. Me I liked CSC, Jens dropping off handing out his bottles and then moving to the front to help attack Cadel for 3k. I love that guy
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

Especially since CSC is living up to past performances. They sat there and watched LA keep up with them and didn't really ever succeed pressuring him. They need to get minutes on CE if they wanna win but they just let him suck wheel, they are going to hate the TT.
disclosure haven't watched stage 17 yet but I bet Sastre and Schlek will be looking right behind them as Evans gets the same finish time as they do on stage 17.

You read this into what I wrote. Please don't put words in my mouth. I never made this assumption. I only stated what actually happened and that it shows that having a rider in a breakaway then bringing him back to help the leader can sometimes backfire.Originally Posted by Dolomiti
