Hopefully Navarro wins a stage at TDF.

Looking on the bright side, it was still better than 2012 :)

Navarro . . . so close. Cannot fault Adam Yates for the late attack to take the stage. That is racing, and he took a great stage victory. I wonder, if he could have re-done his last 3 km, would he have worked with Bardet to distance Thomas? Probably not. :Neutral:

A well timed and patient ride by A.Yates - He's attacked the last two days and paid a little at the finish - Yates is much better at dosing his efforts on climbs while he rarely has a bad day - He'll have next to no mountain support at the TDF but will have a strong team for the TTT which will put him in a good spot in GC early on - A top 5 is a definite possibility.

Why does this forum have short memories - Who was the rider who made the final attack in the last two stages ? A.Yates. I swear on the bible and wonder if many watch the actual race.

It wasn't that unexciting tho, the stages were ridden hard, even though everyone knew who was going to win.

It will be, given that Thomas is only using this race as a tune up and couldn't care less. It was him training and the others going full pedal to the metal, the conclusive proof is him being dropped on the mountain.

You cannot be serious :surprised:. I turned off the TV 300 m before the finish because I thought it was over. I guess I'll have to watch the evening summary.

Enjoyed the last stage. Heartbreaking for Navarro but well taken by Yates. This is cycling.Great ride by Geoghegan Hart, Sky keep finding these riders.

He was 100% lucky that Navarro cracked completely. He didn't use his brain, otherwise he'd attacked earlier to make sure he won. ***** victory.

I always find it funny when cycling fans make fun of other big sports because they think they are boring and don't deserve the attention. If a football fan does that I'm not surprised but cycling fans should know better.
