Nibali is toying with everyone. I wish there was at least some competition for the yellow jersey.

I do think Contador would have put good time into Nibbles today. However, tiredness and fatigue are hard things to judge,

Well contadors bad luck was majka's good luck. No way he'd have been allowed to ride like that if contador was still in the race. Good ride by him

Zubeldia at 22 seconds to another top 10.

Maybe, maybe not. If you didn't enjoy that or found it interesting I'm not sure what you want from watching cycling.
The stage in and of itself was interesting. But in terms of gc not so much. I meant the gc race would have made this more interesting

Peraud hoping Nibali drags him to stage win and putting in zero effort for 4 km...and then jumping him at the line lol, Nibali was having none of that :D

I'm pretty sure that Zubeldia's purpose in life is to provide a measure by which other riders can determine whether they had a successful Tour. Did you finish ahead of Zubeldia? Success! Did you finish behind Zubeldia? Fail! He'd like the metaphorical broom wagon for GC contenders.
 
Damn Nibali is strong. Of course way too strong.

Without Nibali, Froome and Contador in this race it would be epic. Anybody with enough cash should bribe those guys to stay away in the future.

Good ride by Majka, who saved himself for the final few stages.

Valverde very human these days.

Porte back to normal.

On second watch I do think Nibali took it easy towards the end

Flo should be happy - He wasn't greedy afterall :D
 
Nibali's jump was pretty impressive, but he didn't make up that much time to Majka in the end. This was definitely not going full genius, but I had to laugh at the look he gave Peraud during the 'sprint' for second:D

Well, what was the point of sprinting in Nibali's face after being dragged up there? Stupid move, no respect.
