It looked funny, a huge guy keeping up and attacking small little climbers on a mountain climb LOL.

How do the Brit cycling fans feel about this? Is there pressure on Brailsford to include Wiggo from sponsors etc?
But this won't matter because Contador will neutralize all
It will be a race for second place.
Froome knows this already.
I how but he does
Of course I'm just shoveling BS or am I?
Contador seems to have lost the mojo he used to display.

Yes, and so is Froome.
If you dream of being famous - think of what birds do to statues.
I guess his team management want to keep his morale high before the TdF start just like Omega did recently with Cav.

Mojo = synonym for PEDs? Well, that plus father time - non-PEDs-aided aging can be a cruel mistress, although your mileage may vary.Ozrider wrote:Contador seems to have lost the mojo he used to display.
Congratulations to U23 rider Tyler Williams! Awesome result for him, I hope to see him continue improving
Contador has been great this season, but all of his best results have come in races w/ short, steep climbs of which there are very few in the TdF. Also, his ITT has gotten slightly better this season, but it's still no where in the ballpark of Froome. Contador's best ITT his year was in the Basque Country and it was on a very hilly course, at T-A he gave up 40 seconds to the specialists in less than 10km. Final ITT at the tour is pretty flat and 54km. Froome put 2 min into him in 33km last year.....
edit- not to devolve here, but....everyone points at Froome's climbing as suspicious, it's not, it's his ITT-ing ability! When a big guy starts climbing too well (Lance) or when a skinny guy starts ITT-ing too well (the chicken, or 2009 bertie at Annecy), that's when things get fishy. Froome is all over the bike in comparison w/ Wiggins or Martin, yet he still TT's almost as fast...
edit 2- and oh, I'd love nothing more than for Wiggo to get to ride since it's starting in England....then on the cobble stage when the group splits and Wiggo is up front and doesn't wait...
