    I think there's a bit of paranoia there. I would be more pissed off with the 4 second time bonus he missed out on when Froomedog blocked his sprint on stage 6 which was exactly the same time he lost the race by!
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Hmm, indeed. Funnily enough the presenter made just that point at the time, saying he wondered if Porte would be so chilled if he lost the overall by 4 secs!

    Best final stage I think I have ever seen!

    Didn't hear him say that, I'd say most people were conspired against Froome personally.

    Thought you might be! haha

    Its been a long time, well, OK, since the Giro where I've seen the final stage determine the race. This was more exciting though as it was a race rather than TT.

    It took some doing, to avoid the result until I'd watched it a week later.

    I thought Froome was going to do it, then matee snuck off up the road whilst I was in a state of Froome delirium.

    I bet it did, was surprised to see this thread resurrected.
