I like how riders actually care about the jersey.

Campenaerts again but BMC doesn't let him. What are they doing? Trying to get a sprint? Is Dennis pretty fast or what?
Dennis has won reduced bunch sprints in the past, but tbh I don't know how it could work out in this situation..

Then it makes a bit more sense, but still.

Hivert was penalised 20 seconds in Yorkshire yesterday for vehicle drafting: I doubt it was as blatant as we have just seen Dumoulin do.
Cheating is allowed as long as Froome is riding. Don't complain.

Froome losing time is the best thing that can happen for the race, he knows he will lose more in the long TT as well, so he has to attack, controlling isn’t enough.
Froome in bad shape typically doesn't attack in any significant way either.

I always love those sprints for the first mountain points in a gt. It's almost like the fight for a stage win between breakaway riders.
Yes, awesome BMC working for Bardiani, those Israeli cycling fans adding the local flavor to what they saw happening on Ventoux or Alpe.

Great work by BMC. I’m not too familiar with crosswinds but I’m guessing when Dennis was on the right hand side of the picture he was protected from the wind?
