Does nobody remember in 2003(?) when Lance got hooked by that spectator's handbag and went down? Hamilton and Ulrich waited for him to latch back on. There are so many unwritten rules and etiquette to follow in road racing and Cuntador's move was one of them.
I hope Saxo completely blocks him in on the final mtn stage while Schleck attacks.
Wayne that was a different scenario. It was arguably the spectators fault and not Lancie pantses fault. Plus Tyler was no where to be seen. It was only Ulrich, Mayo and Armstrong and it was Ulrich that well I don't think he waited, but he didn't attack either. Tyler slowed the boys when Lance went off road after Beloki crashed and those boys were all chasing Vino who was down the road and oblivious to the incident. And Lance did not wait for Beloki not that he was getting up anytime soon from a broken hip. And the Postal team went balistic on the Passage de Gois when there was a big crash that included some of the main competition to Lancy Pants. He pt in a huge chunk of time on his rivals that were caught up behind or in that crash.
That said, I am sure Contador saw something had happened to Schleck. He might not have known what but I think it was obvious that something happened.
Pro road cycling is odd. I mean they have this honour code where you respect the yellow jersey wearer, don't attack when a guy crashes or or gets a puncture, don't speak of doping publicly yet they are(were) happy the cheat with dope. Lancie Pants was perfectly happy to attack after the Passage de Gois incident.
Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.
