"is this what people want to see? a favourite loosing the tour in a descent?" go home! you'll never win tdf!My sympathy towards the Schlecks is just getting smaller and smaller..
They're very arrogant, and they're complete cry-babies. I'm glad Contador is back to form, I hope he puts them in their place today and tomorrow
The only distance Sanchez and Contador gained yesterday was made during the descent and not on the climb, which was brought back before the end of the race and they all finished with the same time.Contador and Sanchez did get distance between them and Schlecks/Evans yesterday. And that was a category 2 climb. With Contador showing this kind of strength, we have yet to see Evans really get pushed. So far, none of them have had the form and/or courage to really attack the other favorites. They're going to have to today and tomorrow, so who knows how it'll turn out.
Regarding humility, I don't really care about the reasons. The doping charges are a completely different matter.
