Re: The Cycling discussion thread
Big day today, very much looking forward to the highlights later on. A 40KM Time Trial, half of which is flat and the other half spent going up and down. Appareantly the descent is very technical too which will favour Contador a lot more than Froome whose one weakness is going downhill. Froome, should however have done enough on the flat/climb to ensure that he has a fighting chance for victory near the end.
Rodriguez said he is hoping to only lose one minute today and for the sake of the race I hope this is the case. Would be lovely to see Valverde only lose that much time too.
Hilly Time Trials FTW!
