    47 kms and 2m17s.

    Is anyone else watching?
  • Oh ffs! Carlton shut up, or think of something different to say. Please! You keep repeating the same 'hilarious quips' about the intermediate sprint prizes every flipping day. Wasn't funny, or even remotely interesting on stage 1. Wasn't funny on stage 2. Stage 11? You guessed it, still not funny, or even amusing. And no they haven't put the prize money up because of your comments last year.

    Nincompoop!

  • Technically i'm watching today's comedy stage. Although my patience has worn thin with Carlton. (Quelle surprise! ) Might turn over to watch reruns of Big Bang Theory, or something about war on the Hitler channel. And await the highlights with a half way competent commentator! Eurosport managers please take note - I got Sky to watch the professional sport of bike racing on your channels. Unfortunately your commentator is so dire, i switch your channel off on a regular basis.

    Any predictions today?

    Froome finished 2nd to Cobo on this climb in 2011 so I'm going with him (Froome that is not Cobo!)

    Why are tinkoff on the front? Not convinced this is a day for Contador.
  • I see Oleg has flown in to play amateur DS today.
    What a wasted effort, both for Tinkoff and the breakaway.
