    Must be hard for Thomas to really push himself. He's little chance of making time on those ahead, and has a fairly comfortable margin behind. No suggestion he's anything other than professional (arguably it's more pro to save energy), but you can sort of see why he might not be giving it everything.

    This came up in a conversation somewhere earlier in the tour - they use their own chamois still, so they're sitting comfortably in that respect..

    G is going to ship time

    He's minutes behind 2nd and minutes ahead of 4th (and all rivals are behind him on the road) so unless he completely explodes it's going to make no difference

    What a monster. Doing that on the flat would be incredible, doing it after doing the same thing for 3 weeks is unreal
