    Hmm. tricky one. How about between them? Stops it getting obscured by steam and you can watch it from both areas

    Is Porte peaking too early? Trying a bit too hard to beat his old mate?? Great ride though!

    Its the Sky ploy.... that way they don't have to ride off the front anymore - they can follow.

    Mind you - the other day I saw the coverage and saw that Stanard was off the back with the last 40 km to go. He did not look good. Maybe there is something off with Sky this year.

    Porte is a good climber, I reckon he's well placed for the next few days. He does have rotten luck though, so we'll see...

    Seemed a weird TT course, didn't suit the big TT dogs at all.

    Some riders definitely - but then that was the same last year (Kwiatkowski and Landa).

    This year Kwiatkowski and Landa have been great, Thomas has looked good. But on the other hand Froome and Standard have been below their normal levels.

    I guess that it shows they aren't robots and that the attainment of peak fitness isn't always an exact science/

    Must say I'm a tad worried about Froome Dog, guess the mountains will provide a clearer picture though.

    Erm...a shortage of jiffy bags maybe?
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Thought Froomey still looks a tad weighty.

    He did show us a glimmer of hope yesterday though! Was he sandbagging do we think?
