Sky and Froome really need to take care tomorrow if it is raining. Nothing is over
What you worrying for ?, I've had it rammed down my throat all week how brilliant a decender he is.

Wow. they just showed the defensive dive Nibs took to avoid running over Froome
Was Nibbles injured in the crash? Cause he completely disappeared from the peloton after that.
Anyone got a link of this, would love to know if Nibali is injured or not as otherwise he will win tomorrows stage from the break...
i just saw Nibali interview for RAI.
He said he's OK he just took some bumps.

He said bardet went away in the descent, and Froome went chasing for Bardet, he went chasing Froome. Froome carshed suddenly and he had to break but could not avoid the crash.

Quintana does not deserve the podium

Porte does imo ...lots of bad luck but he has attacked thru the race

needs 50 secs to Quintana ...team is not strong enough
Caruso did some great work for him on the final climb.
As porte lost time, it wasn't so great to work for him like this.

Sagan would have managed to avoid him entirely. Pretty weak.

Tier 2: Nibali, Valverde, Froome
Tier 3: Aru, Quintana, Porte
Tier 4: Zakarin, Contador

what kind of list is this? :eek:

That's my go. Contador really has Tier 2.5 skills. The problem is that he thinks that they're 1.5.

Nibali hit the deck hard ...on his stomach and slid... a real dive it was. Waiting for a report of some sort.

if Porte had not attacked he probably would not have lost time but he had to try and Bardet was up the road anyway so he had to chase.

Yeah, Sagan might have jumped his bike over Froome. Nibs slid after he jumped. not good!

It's a bit of a shame that Froome is copping so much hate for making this Tour predictable when he's pretty much one of the few GC riders trying to make the race exciting whatever his motives are. When Bardet took off on the descent, he could have and probably should have easily let him go and just caught up to him with his ridiculous team on the climb instead of going after him himself. He might probably be getting some words tonight from his manager about that...
