- TdF Stage 17 – No Miracle Comebacks [Spoilers]
I do wonder why the Eurosport lot keep saying “Rider XXXXXX is not usually good at time trials” when a rider does a good time. I’m pretty sure that this is mostly “Ride strongly uphill, don’t lose too much downhill” so not really a normal TT.
They also need to read the TdF official feed. That explained why Peraud left the racePosted 4 years agorusty90Member
Bolleaux, I missed Froome’s ride! Can someone sum it up?
Froome looking like an escaped windmill as usual. Rode a negative split, 11 secs down on Bertie at the first check, swapped bikes just before the second check to confuse the enemy, took it carefully on a wet descent.
9 secs faster than Contador 😀Posted 4 years agorusty90Member
The French guy who went down
Péraud, who was riding with a broken collar bone.
According to The Inner Ring
Péraud crashed on the very corner where his family were waiting to cheer him on, his wife could only climb over the barriers to comfort him
Now that’s truly bad luck. Hope he didn’t skid on his own name painted on the road by his family …Posted 4 years ago
