I am sorry for Froome but was just so funny see him to run without bike and then gave him some not in use bike but at least frame was in yellow.

Are you freaking kidding me? A moto takes out the on the attack yellow jersey on a critical summit finish? Get the damn motos off the roads! Enough of this crap. What a farce!
So no video from the road?
And what's the moto supposed to do, run spectators over? This isn't the first time spectators have influenced the outcome of the TdF. Relax. Froome has this. He rode everyone but Porte off his wheel.

Hopefully Porte is not affected too much by running into the moto.
You can't unpunch Merckx's liver, but you can give Froome and LRP their time back.

Bjarne Riis saying in Danish broadcast, that this is the funniest he has ever seen. God he must hate Froome!
I'm not sure if you are being sarcastic, but it's true. It was definitely the funniest thing I've seen in a very long time and it doesn't have to do with my feelings on Froome.
Seems Mollema lost time too. He just got lucky enough to not lose to much. Based on that (that Mollema probably lost at least 10 seconds because of the crash as well) I feel s.t. as Mollema is the only fair solution.

If not I don't think Sky will pull out, though I don't believe they'll ride into Paris if Froome doesn't wear the yellow by then.

Basically I think the only reason they'll stay in is because they'll believe Froome can still win this.

What an utter douchecanoe!

I'm so mad!
In the defence of Riis and for the sake of full disclosure:

Riis started out by saying it was completely unacceptable, a disgrace and something needed to be done. He then proceeded to say that Froome running looked funny.

Wtf happened??? I'm at a work conference and I switched to my live feed tab and saw Froome running up the mountain?
you know, it's triathlon now, tomorrow they swim 37 km TT in ardeche river
37km SWIM tomorrow...OMG...TOO FUNNY...

Next...The moto crash...RIDICULOUS. Period.

This fan interference has become more and more frequent. Put the freakin' barriers up already.

Spend the time and money. This isn't some backyard alleycat race.

Embarrassing, emphasis on a$$...

Froome should make up the time later with his Lance Froome Wheaties super breakfasts, but this is unacceptable.
