Alberto has to do some kamikaze insane **** if he wants to beat Froome, but these two are head and shoulders above of everyone else in this race right now.

Contador looks promising right now. Most of the climbing is still to be done so he might still win this thing (I hope :D).
Well no, Froome will just drop him again.

Froome is a monster. Nobody really has anything for him and he can do it in virtually all conditions and terrain.

Presuming he does secure the double it will be so very well deserved
 
Everyone saying the race is over need to remember there are a lot of things that can happy. Froome can have a jours sans, an accident (I don't wish that on anyone), Sicilian Voodoo, or any number of other situations. It will be a good Vuelta.

Froome threw everything he had at Contador today. But Alberto is still there.
And Nibali not too far off.

If Froome fades just a bit, this is gonna be a Vuelta for the ages.
Let's pray mate. I think froome will fade, at the moment he is much stronger compared to last year. This seems 2012 froome and he was nowhere in the third week

I think its just a case of what you would bet your house on if you had to.

Not just looking at today's stage but also two stages ago. Contador went and only Froome and a handful of others were able to follow. Sure, everyone regained contact on the flat that followed but it was sign of strength.
