Froome is growing weaker with every day. Nibali on the other hand is rising and Quintana is keeping up. There's a small chance that the yellow will change before Paris.

Not if yesterday's stage is to go by.

Isn't it great that attacking is rewarded?
Sure, but in the mountains you would like to see the favorites at least duking it out for the stage win more than just once :rolleyes:[/quote]

Blame Sky. It's their fault. They are killing cycling. If you attack, you have Thomas shutting it down. Thomas is the 2nd est climber in the race behind Froome.[/quote]

lol no he is not[/quote]

Considering Quintana/Nibali/Contador can't drop him, yes he is.[/quote]

Other than the first MTF, Quintana, Valverde and Nibali have all been stronger than G. I admit though that he is so strong that he can shut down most moves.[/quote]

If Thomas wasn't working for Froome, he would be 2nd in GC. Just because they were stronger than him on the first MTF does not mean they are better than him this Tour. He did more work than them helping Froome and they didn't get a big advantage over him and still don't. They haven't dropped him despite him doing more work than all of them over the last 2 and a half weeks. It sucks, but that's the fact.

G would not be ahead of Quintana in this race if he was riding for himself.
