Greg Lemond seems like he wants to say something.
Then he should say it. Maybe they have PRR rules at Eurosport.
Obviously he can't as he is on British Eurosport. He kept snickering every time he mentioned Porte :D

Some thoughts:

- Froome usually cracks after a really strong day. He's got a huge advantage, but he's going to be taking big attacks in 5 more stages. It will be hard for him to lose it, but I could see it. I think Nairo has the best chance if there are limited TT's. All of his teammates are going to be tired out and aren't gonna be able to be so strong in the next two days.

- Contador usually starts off slow but powers up as he goes on. I don't know if he's got 4 minutes in him, but I expect him to have better days ahead. He can't do the Giro-Tour though. He didn't do well last time he tried it and he's not looking good so far.

- I don't think the jury is out on Nairo., but I think he could take it if he gets under 2 minutes.

- I'm glad Nibali got found out after winning a tour without any strong rivals last year. He's the big loser here. I was getting tired of them pushing him as being so dominant.

Lots of racing to go, so lets see what happens.

Froome dominance is spectacular, but it stands out more because of Contadors and Nibalis *** form. I mean Contador and Nibali loses time to several riders they should normally beat with 1-2 minutes (for example, a pretty heavy dude like Gallopin is well ahead). But I had a feeling that Quintana would be the only real threat to Froome. Nibali has not impressed this year, and Contador would never ride so badly if he hadn't done the Giro.

Froome's performance doesn't bother me so much. It is more so Porte's and Thomas's performances that seriously annoy me.
I was saying that to my dad. Froome dropping Nairo, ok, well done. Porte coming back to Nairo and dropping him, Thomas pushing Valverde across the finish? WTF?

Name me one TDF where all the top riders were in top form. If it worked like that every TDF would just have the same top 10 as the previous one.

Getting into form is part of the challenge. Every TDF some riders overperform, some underperform.
