Well, I think the cat and mouse has a little bit more to do with it than that, but sure couldn't have hurt!

I actually thought he had it with 500m to go. Some serious TT king envy going on there. Had Canc sat in, at least he would've had a chance at winning the stage instead of just ruining Tony's day. Argos didn't have the firepower. Bet there will be some harsh words said in private...

To fill the hole that was created when Lelangue was send walking at BMC, Valerio Piva is coming over from Katusha.


Yeah saw this mooted, still not sure what I make of it. I think Highroad had a great thing and OPQS did a good job of resurrecting it, but I don't think this works for BMC. Highroad was always a selfless team and I can't think of a more selfish team than the current iteration of BMC.

Totally giving props to Tony Martin today. Balls are one thing, I thought it was borderline insane.

You'd think he'd need to ride a saddle with a bigger cutout. :wink:

Martin wasn’t surprised to hear that it was Cancellara — the four-time world TT champion who is arguably his biggest rival for rainbow — who pulled him back.

“Ah, was it Fabian pulling behind? Well, as I often say, the boomerang always comes back,” said Martin.


Translation- I'm going to f-ing destroy you. :twisted:

I'd be surprised if Cancellara did the Worlds TT.

To hold off a world tour peloton in a grand tour stage from the gun is an incredible and dare I say, painful achievement. Pure sufferfest.

Would love to see Martin's power readings and TSS score... :wink:

Yeah, he was bring non-committal before, I think that just sealed it for him tho.

Something like what Martin did yesterday could only happen at the Vuelta, definitely never at the Tour and perhaps also never at the Giro. At least that is my impression. Definitely a case of the peloton having more or less complete control. But sure, entertaining to an extent.
