The OLN guys were insane again today. Someone was talking about Floyd being isolated for the last 40k of the stage. Umm, you mean except for Merckx who paced the leaders for about a third of the climb? Then Floyd says the only guy he had trouble following was his own teammate at the base of Alp d’Huez. Insane.
A what’s with Robbie Ventura? He’s like a stamped out version of Armstrong’s “coach” Chris Charmichael. TV loves their yes men. Like Carmichael, Ventura is ultra postive to the point of being absurd. The other day he said Floyd, for sure, wanted to keep the jersey only to watch him give it away in forcable fashion the next day. I’m sure, a la Lance, at some point we’ll all know his real trainer is some nefarious Italian scientist.
