TdF Stage 17 – No Miracle Comebacks [Spoilers]
D0NK – Member
‘When I saw that I was not able to stay on the wheel of a rider like Mark Cavendish on the descent off a mountain pass, I asked myself: ‘What am I doing on the Tour?’
can’t figure out if he’s saying “well cav is pure shite downhill so if I can’t even keep up with him I’m oot” or sincerely thinks he should be able to keep up with him.
DONK, I wonder if he meant it as Cav has no real urgency down mountain stages as he is on a very different agenda (survive to fight another day) so probably not trying too hard?Posted 4 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember

that’s how I read it; not that Cav is a poor descender, just that he has no reason to descend “quickly” in a mtn stage as he’s only interested in the sprint stages (and as long as he finishes in the gruppetto, who all have an interest in staying together).Posted 4 years agoransosSubscriber
just as interested in real people riding real roads, without all the support they get in the TdF
dont see them having to carry keys and phones do you.
I’d be way faster than the pros if only I didn’t have to carry my keys and phone. 🙄
Anyway, rain due apparently. That could really hamper the late starters.Posted 4 years ago
It pees down on Berti the cheat geet…. and then there’s a break in the clouds for Froome and as his maillot jaune gleams in the rays of sunshine, a host of angels sing allelluia as swoops down the hill to VICTORY
Surelyy the angels would stop briefly to mock Contador as he gets overtaken by FroomePosted 4 years ago
Will be interesting to see how Contador approaches the descents if it is wet. He’s said he doesn’t really care about podium places and he just wants to win so may see this as an opportunity to gain a chunk of time over Froome who has a lot more to lose. Looks fairly dry out there right now though.Posted 4 years ago
Did Carlton Kirby really just say that Contador had overcome so many problems then sort of nod verbally towards doping like it wasn’t his fault?
I’ve got the same issue with some online bike news places who conveniently ignore the doping past of their favourite riders in order to do sycophantic “interviews”Posted 4 years ago
