Already seeing a change from Sky with Landa going in the break with Contador. Aru already without teammates. Bardet waiting for a downhill attack hopefully. Attacking on the descent is great to watch!

That was a really good stage! Really happy for Barguil, and Quintana got some time back which is good even though I think he's too far back.

Will be a great next week or so :)

Aru loses time from not being on the front. Bad mistake, Froome in yellow

Maybe chinks are beginning to appear at Sky. Froome was lucky he had two left when he punctured.He had to do a power of work to get back on.
Not sure what the SBS commentators have against Simon Yates. He is a doing a power of work and still with the main group.He seldom gets a mention.Is it because he is a Pom!!! They keep on about the young South African rider always being in the pack, but seldom mention Yates.Do they have something against O/S?
Great to see Aussie Michael Mathews win a stage the other night as well.A great effort.
Rest night tonight, but back into it tomorrow.Getting into the big hills now I believe so mabye the tactics will change.Maybe we will see Froome attacked more.

Tonight is the night I reckon 8) 4 climbs (2, H, 1, H) and then a 20km descent to the finish.

I am sure Mathews will make it to Paris.He has ridden very well.He knew when to drop off last night.Worked hard early but didn't push.Picked up the points he needed.
Yates dropped some ground last night to Minjies which could be a concern for OS.He looked tired. I think Yates has done far more work over the journey so far than Minjies. But Yates still has a couple of minutes up his sleeve,but needs a good night tonight.
Froome is till looking good, but he is lucky that Landa is still prepared to back him. Landa looks better than most of the GC riders right now.
Does any body know just how many Aussie riders are competing in the Tour and which teams do they ride for?

This tour for Landa is what it was for Froome the last time Wiggins won. Looks better on the bike

And was it last year when Porte was just as good as Froome? Maybe he was slightly lower than Chris. I think that's the Yellow sorted now so I probably won't stay up and watch the remaining stages haha



How about Barguil though! 8)
