    I wonder if he's sick, or if he had a mechanical/crash while the group split up on the climb. Not much info coming out.

    Suggestions that he's now 6 mins down
  • ShadowriderShadowrider Posts: 483
    Seeing reports of him losing 6 minutes now.

    Nooooo my PTP!!!
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    Sky have to be careful they don't lose a bunch of riders outside the time limit.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,381
    CN saying before the stage he said he was feeling good and looking to attack. Don't think we know what's caused the time loss yet?
  • joelsimjoelsim Posts: 7,552
    Visconti, Boem and Niemiec in the BOTD, 30"

    No mention anywhere of a crash for Landa.

    Rest Day blues.

    dodgy bag eh?

    Wehay.

    My continued denial of Landa as a real contender is proven right.


    I'll sign autographs later. Only one item per person please.

    Cyclingnews writes a lot of bollox

    Landa's 5 mins behind the bunch, 6 mins behind the break
  • joelsimjoelsim Posts: 7,552
    That climb was only 4.5% avg over 16km.
  • ShadowriderShadowrider Posts: 483
    Is he paying for his efforts in the TT?
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    6 mins behind break, 5 behind peloton. The break isn't getting away either, so it's clearly not the sedate peloton you'd normally see at this point.
  • joelsimjoelsim Posts: 7,552
    Sky now have a super dom for the Tour anyway ;)
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 61,012 Lives Here
    Astana up the tempo. :twisted:
  • ShadowriderShadowrider Posts: 483
    Do you know what the worst bit is about this. It is used as evidence to show he is doping. Instead of maybe paying for his efforts in the TT, it means he had a bad bag last night. You literally can't win with some cycling fans.

    Oh well, makes me feel less bad for missing three PTP rounds over the weekend, I'm screwed anyway...
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    Think positively. Everyone who does exactly as expected today must be clean.

    As they should. This is a race not a cycling holiday.

    Nieve and Lopez with him, I wouldn't be surprised if all 3 were OTL at end of the day
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    4 minutes behind maglia rosa group. If he was feeling okay you'd think Sky would drop a couple more riders to help.

    Neither Landa nor Wellens seem to have read the script for the day. Maybe Wellens is planning to attack later on.
  • joelsimjoelsim Posts: 7,552
    Today isn't a stage for a Wellens break. The penultimate climb is too steep
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    Landa abandons.
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    Big shame that for the GC battle.
  • bigmatbigmat Posts: 5,132
    Landa gone - shame, there don't really seem to be any contenders firing at the moment do there? Somebody could end up winning a GT by default.
