This guy has to be arrested and dealt with in the courts, the French really do let themselves down with this type of nonsense....please don't someone try to tell me he's not French...
Italian flag in the hands of the guy next to him.
Italians were too busy cheering Nibali too care, if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck...its a duck!!!

Quintana set a new record time on La Toussuire. Brave ride by Froome. Congrats to NIbali!
Really? I guess this is going to be nice material for the Clinic
Its ok. Quintana is allowed to break records because hes a 'natural' climber
Yes and he has obviously peaked. Quicker than Mayo and Rasmussen.

Only way Quintana wins is if he goes on Croix de Fer and even then it might not work. More likely Quintana will do what he did today and wait to go closer to the finish. Will want to win the stage so will probably not throw everything at Froome.
Yeah he should do that because he will get a few people with him when he attacks and Froome will be isolated. Will Quintana risk everything to win though? I don't think he will because he's a negative rider and Valverde's influence is brushing off on him.

One guy out of 15000 did something wrong. Sky will make it out like it's everyone
The vitriol being poured out at Froome is incredible, I've never seen a Tour leader being disrespected so much while on the road. It's ridiculous and totally over the top.
Not even close:

Well maybe he didn't see 1975!
 
yeah, too late for Quintana, if he felt so good, he would try it on croix de fer, Nibali would colaborate with him, I thought he even offered him to go together before his succesfull attack

Just saw the profile and the flat between Croix de Fer and Alpe d'huez will probably kill the race.
Good. I'd prefer an all-out gung-ho assault of an iconic climb than what we saw today where no comparison of how riders are doing is possible when one of the four is way ahead.

I wonder what the chance is of alp duez decending into farce ? Physical jostling of Froome? It could get ridiculous

You must have missed the old guy who gave him the **** you sign about 4 times as he came round a hairpin on one of the climbs.

You can bet the authrorities are getting very worried about what may happen on alp duez
Prduhomme was just interwied by French TV. He was very happy about the stage and looking forward to the outcome tomorrow. Not a word about the supporters assaulting Froome, I guess it is part of the "atmosphere in the Alps"... :rolleyes:

Eh, being spat on is nothing new for riders at the TDF. LA was angry about it and complained quite a bit as well, so they have that and team domination in common.
 
Sorry , but this IS a French problem and it's tend to be heavier than elsewhere.

I haven't seen this in Südtirol to Italian riders, I also must have missed it if there was something similar against Spanish riders in Basque Country.

This comes from their annoying “Vive le France“ attitude. Just go there and try to speak English with them, because you can't speak French. And it's the same in French Belgium and to a lesser extend in Luxemburg. Or try to find some young people in Alsace that are still able to speak their dialect.

It's just disgusting, annoying, respectless and makes a beatiful country, with a beautiful culture, beatiful landscape, fantastic food and lovely people look so damn dislikable.

I agree with you mostly, but obviously not all French people are nasty. I stayed with the nicest family I have ever met last summer and they were French.
