The nine seconds in general are not the big problem. It all depends now on his performances on stage 6, 8 and 9.No pain anymore but also clearly not at 100% and at his level from Dauphiné. Now the missing training sessions come into play. Hopefully he is either feeling better at Aigoual already or he let's the GC go there and focusses on stages if he doesn't improve.
In the Alpes I think he could reach his top shape again.
