Another great day of tour watching, ITV hitting the mark again. No special features, so you knew it was a stage to savour.
The demise of old bum chin was a little sad, his spirited attack looked in all parts a good move, but once your team mate,TJ starts to drop you, it’s never going to be a good day.
The calm, no panic approach from Sky was great to watch. One point does raise its head- could Froome actually go on and win this tour if he ignored team orders? It won’t happen, but let’s see where he is riding next year. He’ll be a leader in his own right somewhere and will be a genuine tour contender.
Wiggo stays in yellow and now looks very solid. He’s not won it yet, but after today he looks even stronger.
