  • An absolute horror show of a day for Sky - Froome isolated after 3km and bridging to the second group himself as Contador led Quintana and several of both their teammates off the front. I've seen the coverage but I've still no real idea how Sky let that happen.
  • Samu has made Rolland soil himself. :lol:

    Just caught up on yesterday which was one of the best GT stages in recent memory, turn on live expecting a dull day as everyone recovers and I see this chaos! Froome to take it a bit easier until the final climb and then go on a charge like a few days ago or has he cooked himself to limit the losses this far? It's not the first time Sky have been caught napping early in a stage. Konig must be a bit fed up after moving himself up the leaderboard yesterday!!

    How come a few domestiques up front have wrecked Greenedge, Astana, a couple of Sky Guys et al?

    Also, I saw the start and wandered off and Froome was with Quintana at one point when it was starting to kick off. Froome must have drifted back as he was such a long way from home. Crazy days. :)

    But a good day for a few others. Such is sport.

    Most definitely. Great to see Bertie up the road, I guess.

    It's going to make the final wee really interesting. Can't see Froome pulling back 3 minutes in the TT, I think he'll be happy if he can get 30 seconds back on this current gap but Nairo should have had an easier day. Why on earth are Astana doing the riding?
  • jerry3571jerry3571 Posts: 1,532
    Scarponi is 7th and he's not wanting to drop further. Greenedge the same thing.

  • I was watching flipping Sporza during yet another ES ad break and the blurted out the ToB result.
    They do this with every race and without a thought for a spoiler alert. :(

    Anyhows, I am seeing the GC battle shifting from 1st and 2nd, to 2nd and 3rd.
    Bertie v Froomy, with neither guy particularly keen on being the RU.

    I still reckon Froome may win this overall. Sky 25 minutes down other than Froome.

    Peloton 25 minutes back, nice day off for them. Would,'t have expected most of Sky to be taking one though!

    Quintana finally pushing on the front. He's been sat in the wheels all day.

    Gap down below 2 minutes on the final climb.
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,020
    Interesting to see if the front group keep riding together or whether they start attacking each other. Group 2 should work together as they are all losing their position as it stands.

    Contrador and Quintana losing their men, Nairo being forced to work but gap not dropping.

    I assume Yates is there too so that's 3 of them who have an awful lot to lose.
