Nibali destroyed everybody (again).

9km solo ride. Crazy.

4 stage wins.

Great fight below the Italian.

Fantastic stage.[/QUOTE]

He forgot to give Majek the Lance Hautecam "look" when he blew by....

Glad Majka got a taste of his own medicine. Chapeau Pinot!
On the other hand Pinot has Majka to thank for the small 5" gap on Peraud and TVG, not sure why he didn't accelerate earlier as only a true can vs the routiers/grimpeurs like Peraud and TVG. At least TVG took a few turns, shame on Peraud for not even trying to help Hope he has a bad ITT !

Peraud is going to finish 2nd in the Tour. 2nd! Completely outrageous, have their been a weaker finishing standing in the last 30-40 years?

Yay! Vincenzo Nibali :)

Felt he would win this stage. But he would be criticized in these pages no matter what he did today...

Bravo Nibs...you da man :D

Huh? What's you problem?
He gets away when no one cares about him, but when he's in any group, he's a pure wheelsucker, then attacks at the top. Hilarious he tried that move again, and Pinot had none of it.

Did he take one pull during the Tour? Watch his teammates stop during TT so they can TTT to the finish line with him wheelsucking all the time.

He was very strong though, the way he followed Nibali was impressive (well, not today of course)

Oh yeah, because you have no right to sprint after attakcing the group, going solo for 5km on Hautacam and then following wheels for 2km.....
The guy was impressive. 2nd strongest on this climb

You do know he didn't blow by Majka, right? He went right by Nieve. Majka was in the pack when Nibali followed Horners attack; and Majka attacked by himself a little later.

Tejay only 2 minutes behind Bardet so he could still finish 5th. Not a big deal for us but his team/sponsors will surely be pushing him.
I am sure he will, not many doubts about it.
Ag2R didn't ride that good on this climb, both doing nothing. They were happy like that, i hope for them they won't regret it.

He had no business with those guys anyway. Way back in GC and only going for mountains classification. No need to mix in in the fight for GC. It was bike racing...simple as that.
