Looks like Froome wont be contending on the GC. 120th today. Had he GC aspirations, he would've been up there.
Hope he takes some 600 W pulls on the front though. :)

i'll settle for it too. finishing 130th doesn't necessarily say a lot as there no sprinter trains and the likelihood of split is far less than in the tour.

I think when Bouhanni is favourite for a sprint, the back - as far away from the action as possible - is probably the best place to be for GC riders.

He just thinks that there are many different interpretations for sprinting in a straight line.

He went very good today, a lot better than he's looked here in previous years.

Yes, not top form but decent yoyo form.

Really strong performance by the man today.
Already in super shape. Bring on Romandie and Dauphine. :)

Impressive performance today, normally he is a level or two below the others here. Only bad luck can beat him at the Tour, I guess.
Alberto we love you
on the road
you don't need to say this stuff
we saw you on the road
you blessed us with 9 great shows
let's not argue the toss about the official count
you are much bigger than that

He should be in worse form than AC right now(and he might be...that's scary). AC has been racing. If Froome is this good now, then he's gonna be thermonuclear in July. He doesn't mess up when it comes to being at his best in July.

Well you can't know this , cos as you said he is never good this early so you can't know what might happen in July.

You could tell that he was very strong by the way he was spinning in response to the attacks. Just needs to lose a couple of kilos before July and number four will be in the bag.
