Yesterday's TT threw up a big surprise for me – the top GC guys got huge time put into them by riders they would have expected to beat. Not one of the top 10 GC guys finished in the top 10 of the TT (Contador was the highest placed top 10 GC finisher at 39 seconds). I can't remember the last time this happened in a grand tour TT (if ever). All of which leads me to believe that perhaps the conditions early on were more favourable (tail wind perhaps) or else the GC guys were knackered after three weeks of aggressive racing. Thoughts?
