    SMH. Get your head together BMC. Van Garderen is out of GC contention and is now free to ride for a stage win. Why don’t the team give him the ultimatum. It’s your job to ride for Richie now or say goodbye to your contract. If BMC had a single focus they would have Porte in 2nd position now.

    • Milessio

      Kind of amusing that two weeks ago, Porte was held to be the whiney loser by many after his puncture!

    • Spider

      spot on! If BMC had properly directed then Richie would have had proper protection on that stage 2 incident – having the whole team (except Greg and Tejay) be behind him and be able to provide support was just pathetic….can you imagine Sky doing something like that? having their team exhausted for chasing breaks for a stage win and leaving their captain isolated….on stage 2!

      The man needs a lieutenant and a competent director sportif (says the armchair expert!)

  • George Darroch

    What Sky has above every other is better management. They’re so focused.

    There are about 8 riders who could win the Tour de France. But only one team.

    • Neal Rogers

      Well put, George

    • Andy B

      They certainly seem to have that side under control this year, unlike when froomey was riding for wiggo!

      • skippy Todd

        or when porte was riding in the giro and had a puncture and took a wheel from another team. Swings and roundabouts.

  • Kupepe

    BMC puts too much money in this team and is not equally focused. Really, I still cannot figure out what this team aims for ? Classics or GT?

    Now that things are clear they should aim next year to give Porte a good Tour/Vuelta/Giro team and everybody work for Porte. This guy is the only one close to Froome from those who are competing atm and the only one who can keep up with SKY and attack. He deserves a GT title imho

    BMC needs to sort its stuff out …
