Why did tony told him not to do anything? I dont get it, tony could maybe ride for another 80 km but what then? Should alaphilippe do the last 60 alone?

chasers look doomed, but the real problem is that the gap to the peloton more or less stabilized for some time around 5:50, now slooowly growing again... I'd say they need 10 min now in order not to be chased back once the peloton speeds up in the last 40k

Martin has lost 30 seconds. Gap down to 5:30.

Froome should initiate a general pee break. Otherwie they are doomed.

This is easy. Someone from Etixx just needs to slash Porte's tire. Due to the LRP mechanical, Froome will be forced to urinate, thus forcing Fabian to neutralize. Bada-bing, bada-boom, break wins.

then we will get to see Fabian attack while Froome pees, thus setting off firestorm of criticism among the Brailsford-worshippers. That too would be fun. Either way, we get entertainment.
