    I feel terrible for Gerrans, That man has had enough injuries to deal with in his career.

    • Sean

      Actually he hasn’t hit the deck that often. Prob had more time out in the last 8 months than his whole career combined.

    Great stage win by Joaquim,Chris Froome had an excellent race to take yellow.
    Terrible crash it was right to halt the race while medics dealt with the many injured.
    Cancellara really suffered with his injuries to get to the finish line.
    Vincenzo and Alberto were really caught out of position on the Muy with Joaquims attack only Chris was able to to keep in touch.

    “After clipping the wheel of John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin), William Bonnet (FDJ) hit the ground”
    You think?
    Degenkolb was overtaking on the outside, then veered inwards chopping Bonnet’s wheel. clipping and chopping are not the same thing.
    Stupid stupid riding…such reckless disregard for fellow riders seems more common these days.

      Good catch. I think John Degenkolb has a bit of apologising to do.

    • RayG

      I wouldn’t call that veering. He’s moved left, but not suddenly, and Bonnet had plenty of room on his left to go into if he was paying attention. Come and watch our B grade crits. Then you’ll see veering.

    • Jake(Aus)

      I’ve re-watched it a few times now and I personally think you are right, he cuts in pretty suddenly and quite a long way too. It’s not up to Bonnet to move in that situation, it’s a straight road and he’s simply holding his line. Can’t be expected to have to move over on a straight piece of road in that situation, especially when he was out on the far right of the peloton. If Degenkolb held his line for another couple of metres the accident never would have happened.

    So it appears the double is not going to happen, Froome is looking a class above in the climbs. All change however once they hit the cobbles.

    • Michele

      If Froome get’s through tonight unscathed, [and unfortunately I think he will], then yes, it is fast shaping up to be a bit of a procession.

      Could become a snooze-fest.

  • Cam

    Not sure I would want to wear the yellow jersey this year, Dennis missed the break on stage 2, Cancellara hit the deck on stage 3 and now Froome will be wearing it on the cobbles of stage 4….

    • Sean

      What are you suggesting? Lets hope he looses 5 or 6 minutes so the other 3 have a ‘sporting chance’ at competing with him.
