Well, what is the likelihood he would have managed to get into a breakaway like he did had he not been that far back.Jason1500 said:He has been the star of Team Radioshack this race IMO. I wonder what place in the GC he would be in right now if he didn't help Armstrong when he fell in stage 8.
Excellent point. Sastre pulled the same move the year he won. He went from insane time back to leading. Had Horner been nine minutes down, they would have brought the whole break back and he would still be nine minutes down.nims said:Well, what is the likelihood he would have managed to get into a breakaway like he did had he not been that far back.

10:37 - 10 on GC - Christopher Horner (USA) Team Radioshack
41:03 - 24 on GC - Bradley Wiggins (GBr) Sky Professional Cycling Team
I am really impressed by his ride today - but I think it is a bit depressing for him and Radioshack that their 5th man in lineup prior to Tour start (behind Lance, Levi, Klodi and perhaps Jani) turns out to be their strongest GC man. With good time trial he should defend his 10th or even move up a spot - not that it matters in grand scheme of things.Argentius said:Horner is pretty impressive -- makes me play the "what if" game quite a bit. Glad to see him representing!
