    Froome being well looked after by Valverde. Pray G is ok - looks as if he might have struck head on lamppost

    Barguil? Think Thomas was behind him when he had his tumble.

    That was a terrible crash, worrying they've not cut back to him, or no up date on race radio.

    Hopefully Barguill is removed from the race tonight. That was an appalling move.

    Gallopin losing lots of time.

    Racing accident surely...

    Off the worst of the descent now, Nibali still with 10-12s

    Thomas crashes
    Unwittingly pushed on the roadside by Warren Barguil, Geraint Thomas crashed in spectacular fashion in a turn but is back on his bike.

    He is not racing...must have crashed as well.

    Seems to have given up they way he was descending sitting up on the tops. Perhaps saving it for a long range attack in the alps.

    Gesink chasing Nibali to defend his GC placing, but the gap is going out, 22"
  • MacaloonMacaloon Posts: 5,545
    I was only joking about Sagan, FFS.

    Does Nibali know there was a breakaway?

    It was a stupid move, obviously not concentrating or pushing too hard and thinking he can take some riders on the inside. Foolish move, ITV commentators talking about how Barguill has been questioned about pushing too hard down hill.

    Any further news on G? That was a terrible shock, way beyond any way to control it.

    Remember to wear your helmets out there folks. Never know when you'll get barged into a lamp post

    Yes, but you can't start trying to throw people off the race for making a mistake on a descent - should Contador have been kicked out after nearly taking Froome down in 2013 for example?

    G!! is home. Chapeau!
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    G loses hardly any time...

    Good move for Poels to drop back for him.

    G rolling in now and looks ok.
  • JackPozziJackPozzi Posts: 1,191
    G looks ok and chasing hard to limit losses, lost his glasses though

    G is just the best!

    Slightly tragic sprint for 18th by The Greatest Stage Racer Of His Generation
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Good of those people to stand at the dangerous spot to break the fall for Barguil...

    Poels collects G and brings him back to the finish. That crash in slow mo looked horrendous.
  • ic.ic. Posts: 768
    What's up with Gallopin then? Doesn't look like a mechanical cost he has a team mate with him? Confidence issue?
