Hell, I'll say Froome says "f*** all y'all" and just destroys everyone, including Wiggins. He can't let his best chance now, or in the future, to win a TdF slip by.
At least I'm praying for this to happen...to wake me from my coma watching this year's "race".
Man I'd love to see Wiggins actually win on a mountain top just to stamp his authority on the race. Gotta be some tired riders so maybe the break will be caught today. Evans even made the point he should be allowed in a break cos he's so far down on GC! Nibali also wants a stage win cos he knows he can't do better than third overall.
Original weight 87 kgs, Current weight 80 kgs, Target weight 76 kgs
If the break doesn't stay away and nibali makes a move, froome and wiggo will stay with and froome will either pull away at the very end or they will gift nibali the stage. I really want to see anker sorensen win a stage. The guy is just always working his tail off but after yesterdays effort i don't think he will have the legs.
TV in the break, again!!!! Woohoo. My favorite rider on this year's tour. At least he has some life in him, unlike any of the rest of them.
He's really trying to keep the dots. I would love to see him win the KOM. He deserves it.
You said it! And, isn't it nice to actually see guys attacking each other instead of having a nice picnic ride across France like the GC contenders
So Nibali pulls a fast one put some seconds into wiggo finally causing some mayhem which could ultimately fracture team skys time trial around france and what happens?!?!?!?
Oops i better sit up so valverde and co do not get chased down............im fully aware that the break would have been chased down but it would have put huge pressure on and meant that someone other than sky would dictate the pace!
This is without a doubt the weakest/worst tour de france i have ever witnessed.......taking nothing away from wiggo but the field as a whole are just poor!
Yeah, I'd love to see TV keep the dots. Points total aside, he's been the KOM in my mind so far this year.
I was really hoping to see Nibali sneak off and gain back enough to put a scare into Sky. Maybe even one where they have to respond on Port de Ballés and BW gets dropped by CF, who must respond to not gift the MJ to Nibali.
[brainwashed_by_ads] In the meantime, I'm gonna polish off these Spicy McBites with some chocolate milk and Ultra beer, before putting my new Cadillac and Nissan on Geico. [/brainwashed_by_ads]
No doubt. They used to kill us with Saab ads. Seemingly two or three every break.
Who is that neon green team in the front of the peleton? I have never seen them before :-)
Richie porte has dinged it and way off the back......i assume we all sit up again in the name of sportsmanship?
Lets hope the pressure is cranked up in a mile or two...........THE last climbs of the tour, for the love of the tour lets see something to get the juices flowing!
Ideal scenario for me would be to see wiggo blow up and froome given the green light, sadly we all know that won't happen!
By now I think we should just expect the rest of the tour to be like this ...boring.
Perhaps this years the Olympic comes into play or maybe because "very little" people dope, we don't see television worthy cycling competition.
Its just a real shame......every year i get mega excited and preach the tour to anyone who will listen, encourage people to watch a great spectacle......its safe to assume that most newbies watching their first tour will be losing interest fast!
Its all very well the ''in the know'' fans appreciating what they are seeing and we all appreciate wiggins and skys control, BUT it does not make for good television, ultimately the field have fallen way short and this tour will be very soon forgotten unless this next hour explodes!
Nibali and Valverde truce? Maybe is Nibali attacks and bridges to AV AV will work with him? They must have some kind of deal with the handshake
Its all irrelevant now, not enough miles to do enough damage so unless froome goes all traitor on us or wiggo stacks his bike its wiggo's tour.......just like we knew 2 weeks ago!
So thats it, another climb and nothing?
So disappointed.........what a pigs ear the planners made of this, AND compounded by another time trial to come!
