So Navarro and Impey throw away the chance of a stage win by refusing to work with Nibali ... good work guys! alley Cummings.

Valverde and Froome having a very long conversation as they coast in the last few hundreds of metres.

Nibali is well off colour. Was never going to win that.
Pinot more than off colour, loses 2'-36".
Barguil attacks at the bottom, dropped at the top.
French panache does not win tours.
Sums up the French day on what was pretty much a nothing mountain stage.


Adam Yates brought down by the deflating kite.
He had attacked and got away from the peloton.
Looks to have been quite badly knocked about around the chin and mouth.

Very animated.  If anyone finds out what it was about, I am the kind of gossip oriented detail oriented fanboy who would like to know.  Thanks.

A stage which meant almost nothing.  But Steve Cummings went well, well managed win.  Four stages for a second tier team.  Nothing much for the millionaires.  Something to perk up the Brits.  A kind of unexpected yellow jersey.  Unexpected green jersey.  A collapsing red kite.  We get to see the thermic camera in action.  the emergence of The Coq as a serious sprinter.  And who ever heard of McLay! Not me for sure.  Lots of events to keep us entertained.  

Let the racing begin.    

So after all, it is not that bad.  I assume ti will hot up tomorrow and things will get going for the GC.

So Pinot had his team drill the front of the pack because he was suffering with sickness, only to then get dropped himself when SKY and movistar took over? nice tactics!

Zakarin and Majka lost some seconds too... it doesn't pay to go to Giro and then Tour.

Agreed, and I'm very happy with Cummings winning, but what was the point in Navarro and Impy just sitting there letting the gap grow when with a little bit of an effort they may have been in with a shout of a win.  I can understand GC riders thinking about the bigger picture, but these guys just rode 162km for no reason whatsoever other than a bit of telly time for the sponsors.  Woeful lack of nounce!! It's not as if they were worried by Nibs as it was clear within 2km that he was incapable of waltzing clear.  Makes me think they were paid to let Cummings win .... which would be sad as he deserved the win on merit IMO.

I grow a great admiration for Cummings, for his incredible intelligence of his "art" . It seems he exactly knows when and how to attack . When he triess he wins . Quite impressive .

Pinot on French tv.
Says he isn't ill, just that he had no legs and has screwed up his timing.
Feels just like the Dauphine.
So, too good to early in the season, no good in July.

Aru ftw in that case. Laughing

I can accept Forza Cummings, if you like.  Wink

My thought about Vicenzo today is too much effort trying to drop Navarro and not much to be gained here.
So perhaps he will have another go when a better situation arises and the GC settles down.
Forza Vicenzo......Cheer up Barty, he's not finished yet. Basketball The ball is still in play.

I thought that was quite honest from Pinot... Maybe he can still recover and come good in 2nd or 3rd weeks for a stage, or still shuffle focus to the polka dots.

They are really dragging their heels over sorting Adam Yates's time out.
Still showing 4 minutes down on the bunch, when in effect he was some seconds in front when their equipment failure caused him to crash......
Now, who is in the white jersey again? Rolling Eyes
