    Brilliant win by Majka,Dan Martin did his image no harm either with his chase to a second place.
    Watching Serge Pauwels MTN Qhubeka chasing Rafal Majka, He is dropping his right hip big time while riding in the saddle and I would say losing a lot of power as a result of the imbalance.He might need a body alignment check up ?.
    Chris did the business and never looked challanged by other team leaders.
    Vincenzo made a few attacks earlier in the stage which came to nothing and looked like a rider on the finish climb that wished he was somewhere else.
    I think he will change his winter/spring programme coming into the 2016 season.

      When they started featuring Pawels you could tell he was already fatiguing. Fatigue = loss of form = dropped hip. You’d be surprised how crappy even average riders form appears when they are even half an hour from cracking.

    Why isn’t the 1st hr shown on TV. Sounds a lot more interesting than just watching the peloton ride tempo behind the breakaway and it would have been good to see the fight for the Green jersey?

    @cyclingtips your results are showing that only 3 riders finished last night’s stage :)

      Well thats the podium sorted. Its about time they booted out the dopers.

    What happened to Rui Costa? Crash, illness, mid-race punch-up?

    Over here in Germany, people were very happy as much as surprised about the accomplishment of Emanuel Buchmann at his very first Tour de France. He’s not been amongst the names to be known so far, and already made a big step onto stage when he took the National Championship title a few weeks ago. Also, in the interview following the race, his replies were remarkably calm and modest, something I personally liked a lot.

    Majka did a great job again yesterday, I think!

    What do you think, Nibali will do now that he apparently cannot meet his (and probably his team’s) expectations at all? Will he give up? Will he try to get back into a topten position at least? Will they go for Fuglsang instead (who, however, seemed to suffer a lot yesterday, too)?
