    Gap is widening despite being solo?

    At this rate he could have 2m30 over the top of Sestriere.

    Yates’s collapse is the worst I’ve seen by a GT leader since Cadel Evans in his debut season. Probably worse.

    He's probably just sick like Chavez was.

    How much is Froome drinking? Seems like he's had 10 bottles in the last 20k

    Watching Froome descending, bit like watching a cat falling out a tree. Legs all over the show but still lands on its feet.

    If FDJ mug TD that would be too brilliant. Unfair, but properly dastardly.

    I reckon Froome is going to blow big time but it’s great watching. I really hope he does it just to see the reaction!

    Some have gels in them. Plus he doesn’t want to be carrying full bidons.

    Was Froome’s bottle from the Sky car about a kilometre from the top of the Finestre strictly legal?
  • milton50milton50 Posts: 3,856
    Gap steady for now

    Why wouldn't it be?

    Yates must be descending but the gap is still going up...

    Not the final climb so no issue as far as I understand.

    Er, why not?

    FDJ bring Reichenbach across the gap so that Thibaut can still sit on the front

    The regs are for the top of the final climb aren't they?
