CyclingNews is reporting that Oscar Freire had loose lips and let slip ttheir strategy for getting Menchov in yellos on Champs.
Of course they hope Menchov will be the overall leader after the TT, right? What am I missing here? He didn't reveal any tactics, so it's not like he surprised anyone with revealing they hope Denis takes over the lead before the road to Paris. Is it that they hope he takes it DURING the TT? Maybe a nudge that the green jersey isnt priority 1?Without intending so, green jersey wearer Oscar Freire revealed Rabobank's general classification strategy at the Tour's second rest day in Cuneo, Italy. Nicely seated under shady pavilions nearby the hotel pool, journalists asked the triple world champion if he was confident to carry the jersey to Paris. The Spaniard replied: "I won a stage and scored more points, and as we hope Denis will be the overall leader after the time trial...". By that time he realised that maybe it hadn't been a good idea to put it this way, and everybody laughed.
