Van Garderen: All about Porte at Suisse and Tour

I have to say I think he's found the best place for him to be. Super-dom. He can pull that role off very successfully, IF he'll wear the shirt. American fans would have something to whine, and cheer about - "Gee, lookit how good TJ is! They should give him a chance! C'mon TJ!" - instead of the perennial "not this year". Super-doms get a lot of good attention.

Unfortunate timing with that post Hiero! :D

Okay there was a headwind towards the end of the climb today, but the gradients were not steep and he didn't manage much of a turn in my opinion. Left Porte on his own and on another day he could have lost time to Landa or another late opportunistic attacker.



It was a big effort from Kung to hang in there for so long. Matthews, Albasini, Battaglin et al were nowhere to be seen when he finally dropped.
