  • Landa going to lose a place while Bilbao is still hanging around up the road.
    Weird tactic.

    It feels like Bahrain McLaren have got hold of Movistar's TDF playbook.

    Hey what are Tom and Wout doing?
  • Surely they give this to Kwiat for all the hard Tour work he's done?

    Surely, he deserves at least one GT stage win. (Not counting a TTT.)

    I reckon they think Porte deserves to get a break.

    Porte not being Porte

    Great effort by Porte, a bit passive by Landa.

    Polka dots for Carapaz. Stage for Kwiat.
  • Only two riders going to finish ahead of the GC boys, so I wasn't that far out.

    Yes, crashed out on a descent when the Ineos duo put some pressure on.

    Even if they sprint it out I would expect Kwia to win virtually every time.

    Kwia and Carapaz to cross the line together, arm in arm? Or a shoot out?

  • Weirdest photo finish ever

    Would have been awkward if Carapaz had just rolled a bit faster there!
