Tour de France 2016

Any cycling fans still about in JA606 land?

Have you been watching? What do you think so far? Who do think will win?
Does anyone other than Froome or Quintana have a chance (if those two stay injury free)?

Cav and Sagan in yellow has been good for the race

PS I'm gonna be halfway up Mont Ventoux next Thursday, cheering thankfully, not cycling.

badly.

But incredible scenes on this stage.

Leaders all just plowed into a motorbike leaving froome bikeless and running up the mountain.

That was just farcical, barriers on all climbs required there is just too much risk of things like today

Just watching it. The GC decision is as fair as they could make it. But it could have easily been the end of Froome's tour.

Big loser today was Porte by the look of it.

Heading for the top three and now not even in the top 10.

I was on Mont Ventoux yesterday although about 5km up so nowhere near the crash. After the autobus went through we headed back to Bedoin to hopefully catch the finish on the big screen but as we were just outside we heard a massive cheer go up.

So we quickened our pace and when we got there found out about the crash. There was a lot of Dutch so I guess the cheer was for Mollema gaining time. It couldn't have been the French cheering a Froome crash could it?

Anyway on the drive back I was constantly checking updates and was delighted when they finally saw sense and awarded them all the same time, feel for Porte though, he lost the most.

Great day though, got some great photos and also a very red face

And I've just arrived back in Scotland and its pisssing it down

not working for me stateside?

Let me guess, questioning their integrity?

Don't trust them a single bit personally.
