Porte top end power put AC into the lactic acid. Froome did his usual rev it up till the finish and actually had more in the tank than AC of Porte, but Porte dug deep early. Sagan is, well, a phenom.

I see AC loosing a bit of time to those two on Weds.
I will not disagree. But Porte will have his bad day sooner or later. Froome, well I expect him to be Very Strong throughout.
Porte's worst day last year cost him 19 seconds apart from the puncture stage and the TTs.

I think Alberto will lose a bit but hopefully not too much. Not sure what to expect.
This climb is one of Froome's favorites. He will make his move. Who can stay with him is the question.

If Berto finishes inside 20 seconds I'll be happy!

Yep he (Froome) said that he would go for the stage win.

I did not see him comfortable yesterday. He was about to break following Porte, tomorrow I'm afraid he'll lose time. How much it will depend on when froome decides to attack, hoping as late as possible
His face is worth more than a thousand words

Yes when I watched it again I felt the same, he was in a world of hurt. Hopefully he doesn't blow himself up trying to follow tomorrow..... Prove me wrong and Vamos Alberto!

He was hurting, but I think he intentionally let others close the gap.

He easily gets into trouble these days. His endurance level is quite low. He gets into red easily and seems stuck when he does. I thought part of excelling at this level is the ability to suffer, to enjoy suffering, it is not going to be easy. You train for suffering. I thought that is what he was doing? I have no comment for tomorrow, I can only hope for the best.

Reading about Trek extending the contract is baffling except I see they have been using him on almost all their Ads, he seems to be a better image than Mollema or Aru? Hey he is a Legend, which ever way you slice the pie and this is business, its all about good sales numbers. The numbers must be good for Trek since AC came over.
