fair enough, this year's schedule is more than playing to his strengths which I guess is all he needs to sit on.

guess we haven't seen a team this strong in a while. All playing their roles perfectly and many still hanging around at the latter parts of each mountain stage. Well done to Sky for training them up this well.

I know it doesn't happen every Tour but I much prefer see 4-5 team leaders being the only ones left battling it up the climbs with less than 20kms to go

Prologue and one individual TT for all remaining TDFs though please!
