Yeah, I was worried when seeing that he decided to go head to head with the best to defend his jersey. I am mightily impressed with his ride, especially since he went solo for over 5km on this climb

Actually tried to get a stage win instead of riding defensive. Not strong enough but I can respect that
He's still rather young so it'll come ...

Valverde doing a time trial you might as well roll dice to decide the time he does.
This.

Though I can't remember a single good TT he did over 50k+. Right now this looks like Peraud has second place in the bag.
He just did a good one of 47k, though.

15 secs separating the three of them. Pinot and Peraud on better form at the moment. It could go go any way but I see Pinot off the podium.

Nibali is a thrue champ of TDF 2014..(kudos to Nibali) put it pretty clear Again and again..:cool:

It cant be his fault that the rest cant match his level and we could get some GC fights amongst the champions, maybe Froome & Contador could have changed that, but aint here, and staying on your bike and not crashing, have always been a skill in a grand tour.

Peraud... I love this guy. Suffering, 5 years younger than Alien. Didn´t improve his performance but maintained it since he came to road racing late. That´s way more realistic than riding injured one-legged out of saddle for 20 km alone each mountain stage.

The final TT will be epic. 2 podium places and 3 people within 15 seconds.
Oh please. Pinot has no chance. TJVG still has a chance of finishing ahead of him :p
 
When Peraud has done great ITTs at a GT has he also ridden high on GC? I'm curious how well he is coping with the fatigue (obviously better than Valverde at this point, so I guess I've answered my own question :p;))
