long yo-yo for froome getting drop in andorra early, or something went wrong with the program during the rest day?
He crashed earlier and that may be the cause or something else entirely

Bad reaction to the restday bloodbag?

Hate to ruin a good clinic conspiracy but according to Cycling News Live updates the only visible blood is the stuff coming through his jersey

17:21:33 CEST
Froome is fighting on behind but seems to have injured his left shoulder. There are signs of blood coming through his jersey.

Welcome to the clinic. Froome has a bad day, it's a dodgy blood bag, Froome does well, he's juiced to the gills. Or maybe Froome is struggling because, one, he's had a crash, and two, he's already done a big Tour that he peaked in form for. But do carry on.....

I'm pretty sure it was a dodgy rest day blood bag. He crashed deliberately so that it wouldn't look suspicious.

BBC Sport's Matt Slater: "When you are trying to do something that only the greats have done, it is a good idea not to do something that usually only happens to dozy amateurs: crashing into a barrier, five minutes into the ride, whilst going uphill.

"Froome answered every question about his bike-handling and racing skills at the Tour de France, only to fluff an easy one he did not see coming on Wednesday.
suggests the BBC suspect Froome too.

My guess is that Cookson told Froome to crash. He can't be seen to be too biased in favour of Sky after all.

Had to be a bad "program" day.

Either that or they misplaced the super soft pillows that no one can get except team skies. Marginal Gains.

The itv footage caught Froome taking drugs during the stage. He was hanging off a white convertible at the time

Surely you jest about the bloodbag. And that BBC article is a little misleading...he crashed uphill but the pace was picking up and and it looked like a nervous moment.

Unexpectedly poor bike handling skills are a sign of Tramadol abuse.

Probably just pain killers during the race, saw it too, but saw no mentionts of it on the forum before now.
I remember someone mentioning it in the stage thread, I think.
