He'd have taken a further 30sec into Tignes, I reckon.

Two areas of road shown on what is a 25km descent. One area of deep hail/ice on a corner, another of snow having to be moved by a snow plough.

Oh aye. Just neutralise the whole key high mountain stage. Let's just cut to Paris and have a Wolfpack party.

Tignes want their money back.
I bet they desperately try to cancel the whole thing.

Surely they stop it half way down, ferry them past the snow and then kick off again at the bottom of the final climb at said time gaps

To be honest, this isn't really rideable

they choose those points because the race timing system is at the KOMs and the sprints


But retrospectively choosing a finish point for a stage makes a mockery of individual and team tactics for GC contenders.

It would have been completely different if that hail on the ice was announced as they started climbing Iseran, telling everyone the summit was the revised stage finish.

Taking the splits at the Iseran the GC should look something like this:

1. Bernal
2. Alaphillipe +45s
3. Thomas +1:05m
4. Kruijswick +1:10m
5. Buchman +1:37m

Eurosport just showed onboard motorbike footage (from Wiggins' bike enroute to the finish) of the problem ahead of the race. Really didn't look ridable. Bike was having real trouble. Ice right across the road.
