    Awesome stage – perfectly summed up by Chris Froome’s comments / the headline to this article

    You’ve got to love it when we find ourselves in a position thinking “Even though its a flat / transition stage – Need to stay up tonight to watch – because you never know when something’s going to happen”

    Froome – and Sky – have been criticised (a lot) in the past for riding purely on the analytical numbers and not knowing the definition of the word “panache”

    I don’t know if they’ve been listening, but I somehow don’t think anyone will be saying that anymore…

    Something unusual is happening when I lost count of the time Phil and Paul used the words “Amazing”, “Never expected to see this”, “You may never see this again” – experienced commentators seeing something that was clearly unusual…

    Love it

    One for the weekend warriors. Gotta love seeing the pro’s peloton getting smashed to bits by 35-40km/h winds. Makes the Beach rd regulars walk with a bit more swagger today.

    I’ve got to wonder if Movistar are able to even deliver Quintana in good shape at the bottom of Ventoux given the predicted winds. Mind you, I’m not sure BMC will do any better.

      Geraint Thomas showed what it means to be a teammate on a Tour winning squad. BMC should have a think about that. possibly while floating along in the middle of the bunch.

        I agree. Clearly the weakest of the four, Geraint’s effort for Froome was legendary. Of course, everyone knows Sagan is beyond legendary. We won’t see the likes of him anytime soon when he’s done.
