Here's an interesting video comparing styles, which is basically Froome vs Contador, aka Lance vs il Pirata.
I felt the most interesting section was Froome going out of the saddle and frying Contador.
Froome has tremendous pull with the back leg, which accelerates him and sets up his high cadence sustained attack. Of course, Contador is wearing the leader jersey and was the eventual GC winner.
