On output, enlivened by a touch of orange Asturias, Patria Querida with txistu and drums, happy air of celebration in honor of Samuel, the Tour does not hide his frustration at the storm that does not explode. Look to the profile of the dark clouds obscured Aubisque as waiting for a sign, but one of the people, Pau, discouraged him: the storm did not break today, maybe tomorrow, further east, in the Plateau de Beille, whose name alone is frightening. The Aubisque, so far from the goal of Lourdes, also, indeed, the cloud is diluted in that haze that confuses the cows as well as the passage of the publicity caravan and pushed the extra work to asphalt sweepers Development , leaving the road nickel every day, and a tran tran opiate of Europcar, the team leader, Thomas Voeckler, whose pace, more or less, is going through the Pyrenees, so that for Alberto significa.Si Contador, the day was the day of transition that was coming as well - the "need", said the goal of Luz Ardiden, "My strength is resilience and that day more before I come Plateau de Beille perfect" - for the fans, for everyone else, was a day of reflection and doubt. Nostalgia for the old. Review the 13 miles of Luz Ardiden.One that if the brothers did not attack Contador Luxembourg (Evans and unanimously nominated the winner of the day), despite hearing how puffing, despite seeing his pedaling hard, harder and from below, just moved, with wasp hits, five kilometers from the summit at a stage of 211 kilometers is because they are afraid to champion Pinto, fear their reaction, which is normal, given his history of defeats. But then he remembers another, how do we measure the champions? Why do you admire if not for his excessive willingness to challenge those who are stronger? Why admire Ocaña, able to challenge Eddy Merckx, the cannibal, whenever he could? Of course, clears the ready, but did not Ocaña SRM, in his day, the cyclists were guided by the heart, instinct, anger, not the wattage that makes your computer. So they dared.So no limits."As a thought can be obsessive, and the SRM for cyclists," says Pedro Celaya, RadioShack's doctor, calling their brokers to cover their stage at the computer screen of the bike where you can see the watts your body produces in each instant.Where the fear wins. What Contador came not too bad.People cycling knows that if a rider uses a larger development than usual, as an accountant in Luz Ardiden, you do not feel strong. It is a symptom of a bad day. Reasonable doubt want to ask if more than one bad day is a bad tour live counter that, tormented by the weight of the Giro in his legs for about 10 days of falls and storms, much external stress. Only Plateau de Beille, only if the brothers are attacked, it counter claim them - "Surely they have to. The situation is quite complicated because in Luz Ardiden is as if they had wasted time a day to get people like Evans. No doubt will have to move "- if the storm blows up, then can clarify.Roy was formed with the spotted jersey for king of the mountain, next to the young Arnold Jeannesson white and yellow Voeckler, forms a colorful banner that momentarily satisfies the organizing country.France is missing from the green, but that gives it willingly with, the most publicity of all cyclists, and allows you to grab the car happy team at the ports that will not be hard to out of control. Then they all looked hopeful to Plateau de Beille, where all they have earned, Pantani, Armstrong, Contador, have gone on to win the Tour.
