Re: Stage 17: Villadiego --> Los Machucos

I am a bit surprised by the results here, I thought #sky Froome would be really good on this climb. Maybe it was the appearance of raindrops that sets him back a bit, but I still think it will take snowflakes before Nibali gets the better of him. #astana Lopez another disappointment today (but I always thought he'd do better on autostrada climbs, think swiss quality not goat's path).
Contador's resurgence here reminds me of Chris Horner except he doesn't smile as much.
The Angliru might turn into something quite interesting if this theme continues.  . . .
Lopez - you are not the first person I've heard that from. Apparently the mountain roads in Columbia are wide, good roads, not goat paths. Think Swiss! ;)  According to this theory, he should not be doing well on a climb like los Muchacos.
Contador: please, please, no. Yes, I can understand the parallel. I won't say it did not occur to me as well. But knock on wood, he seems to have been wiser these past years. Pray that wisdom continues. We certainly can NOT say we have not seen Contador attack, time and time again, in every GT he has entered, whenever he seems to have enough in his legs.
