Best Tour de France – Aggressive Riding
Team Sky keep it up – Way to go!!
Wow, just finished watching Stage 11 of the Tour de France, what a stage!
Firstly well done to Pierre Rolland, true grit and determination. In the breakaway from the start then crashed on a corner during a descent, had to chase back to catch up to the breakaway leading group bleeding from an elbow to finally win the stage, competitive and exciting. He really deserved his win, and France now have 2 stage wins, back to back as well, with Voeckler last years exciting yellow jersey wearer, although now known for stopping in to have a quick drink on driveways alongside the race, still have not spotted his characteristic lip licking this tour so far.
Chris Froome showing some true form, and really looks up for it, hope he ends on the podium with the extreme work he has been doing leading Bradley Wiggins so far. The stage could also have been won by either Froome or Jurgen van den Brock, both unfortunately the strongmen for their respective leaders. Although Bradley did show that he could also do it by himself if needed.
This stage really produced some of the best viewing and really cracked the peloton, even Cadel Evans finally fell off the back, but could this be a ploy to make Team Sky think he is out of it, then tomorrow another mountain stage could see him attack, although I think the time gap of 3min 19sec may still be of interest to the 3 in front of him, but he really needs to have a huge day to get back into challenging, certainly hope he does not give up trying. I admire his willpower, grit and determination which is what helped him win last year.
Bradley Wiggins keep it up, don’t stop thinking as nothing is in the bag until you cross the finish line on Champs Elyse. He looks fighting fit and trim this year, but what about those sideburns, cut them off they are creating drag (chuckle!!). I among many other cyclist nuts are really happy and proud to see the team effort and hope Bradley gets stronger and stronger through this tour.
What do you reckon can Bradley win the tour, let’s hear what you think?
