Cadel must be second guessing his choice to do the Giro and race for gc.

He should have gone for a stage win or two and just chilled. He is paying for it this July.

I don't think it was his choice, I think it was BMC's.....a booby prize for him to be the undisputed team leader while they quietly put ther faith in Teejay for July.

Anyone with half a brain could see that doing 2 GT's would leave him wanting come July.....especially given the parcours for the Giro. Add in his age and it was always a recipe for disaster. His performance in le Tour is not surprising me in the slightest.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Word, I just did not understand the idea...I guess they were assuming that Teejay was going to go top 5 again.

Like I said, it was not doing it that I question, it is racing for gc. But BMC in general has been flat this year.

Gilbert must be pissed for being kept on tight leash with nothing to show on GC

Speaking of Gilbert -- for a guy who was a world beater two years ago, he is pretty much anonymous lately.

He's been shackled by BMC this Tour and ain't liking it.
