    My Eurosport inexplicably went down. Came back on to show Mcnulty doing the same.

  • McNulty showing there that the traditional approach of looking forward whilst descending is still the best.

    He deserves a day or two in yellow for this.

  • UAE look like they may have just woken up and actually want to keep yellow after all.

    They don't have much to worry about. The podium chasers should be more concerned.

    Maybe Pog thinks he can catch them all on this climb!

    The final 2km is flat not downhill? So if O'connor can come over ahead of Higuita, the fact that Higuita seems a fantastic descender shouldn't be an issue?

    Gruppetto is 30 mins behind, they could lose another 10 on the climb.
    Going to be tight. Might be Colbrelli in green on Tuesday... :(

    Looks like Pogacar will keep his yellow Jersey.

    Good to see his UAE teammates doing something for Pogacar finally.

    But funny to see the difference between Pogacar and his teammates. Pogacar is talking on the radio while his teammates are in pain.

    Not been to Tignes? It's the bit around the lake from Tignes le Lac to Val Claret.
