Preface I love Phil Ligget. He's been great, and I'm sure he's forgotten more about profesional cycling than I'll ever know.
However, I think he's finally lost it. For several years his calls have been slipping, and he gets more and more wrong.
Yesterday on L'Alpe de huez, he just did not get what was going on, even after Paul repeatedly tried to explain it to him.
Ligget kept saying Frnak Schleck didn't have it, and his attaacks which should be sticking weren't.
Ligget totally missed that Frank Schleck and Andy Schleck were trying to disrupt Evans, not trying to chase down their teammate Sastre.
It was embarassing for Phil, when he kept making inane comments even with Paul trying to explain it to him.
I'm afraid Ligget's best days are behind him.
