^ agreed, he's the kid riding to school on his bike dreaming of racing that many of us were, just far more talented... Makes a good story.

Another unpredictable day, incredible. Shame about the news of the route tomorrow, shortened due to more mudslides - Bernal without a chance to fully ride out his lead into Paris.

Psling, you're prob right about Quintana being allowed to go, they weren't just cruising behind him but, yeah. Still, I turned on the tv hoping he'd get another few mins today.. but, no. Optimistic I know.

I think they should have run the stage yesterday and today full distance. No reason why roadies shouldn't have to do some hike a bike :lol:
Shame for Alanphillipe it would have been good to see him win

Yep, a bit of a disappointing end, but good to see a win for Bernal.

Woods came 32nd, assuming all standings are honoured tomorrow.

Such a shame for all the spectators on Cormet de Roselend who would have camped out in their 100's. Some up to a week in advance to get the best spots.

And it was bypassed.

The TdF is all about the spectators.
