What can you do against a 5foot7 56kg rider given the course ?
stop him taking drugs?
this is an endurance race; don't forget that Sky will know exactly what Froome is capable of and will be planning where to attack and gain time and where to suffer losses but minimize them.
Sky have Uran Uran and Henao to support Froome, who does Conatador have? One rider?
There are still big unknowns. How is Contador's time trialling at the moment? Does Rodriguez actually have the legs for the longer mountains?
The Vuelta is a great race so far - really looking forward to the rest.
Boring stage today but then TT and then 3 hilltop finishes in a row!
Oh yeah, I reckon he has a big chance of winning, but needs team support to combat riding against Team Espana, needs it to cool down a bit, and for Alberto to have some more off-days like he had the other day when he was dehydrated.
