I hope to god they stripped every inch of Aru's bike and took every ounce of urine and blood they could.

Unbelievable day from Froome. Turned the entire tour on it's head - amazing.

Absolutely amazing Froome put in one of the true great performances and just absolutely destroyed the field but I think Dumoulin screwed up on the descents as thats where Froome took all the big gains today from him

Fun to watch but ultimately farcical Giro in the end.

Not actually true, he took roughly 50% on climbs and about 25% each on flats and descents. Sky putting out false info, presumably because they know how bad this looks.

I may cancel my boycott if Cofidis send both Bouhanni and Laporte. #beef

Organisers trying to ban Chris Froome..

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cycling/44674282

Shouldn't innocent till proven guilty come into play here although we know the French aren't exactly fans of Team Sky!
No, he shouldn't be allowed to race with this hanging over him. It makes a joke of cycling and ASO are right not to want him in their race. Good for ASO although the UCI should have sorted this by now.

Tour de France has been pretty shit until yesterday (unsurprisingly with the zzzz profiles) but this is probably one of the best sports photos you'll ever see.

Thomas in yellow - Froome 2nd.

What will team Sky do ?

Let both race race or ensure Froome wins..

Tomorrow should be a cracker. 'Grid' start means Froome and Thomas should be isolated from the off with no Sky machine to carry them up. All down to Movistar and Jumbo to rip it up the first climb. Then see Froome cannibalise Thomas.

Fuming if the peloton don't play ball and all sit up till it's together. Basically suicide for all but Sky.

I know that this is not directly related to the topic, but maybe you know a good shop of sports equipment where I can buy sling system and other things for trainings?

Froome is the one to crack first - has Thomas got enough of a lead to play it safe from now till Paris ?

Long term gains.
Is Dumoulin a Sky domestique or something? Let Thomas do the chasing ffs!!

Going to be a close battle for 2nd and 3rd with Roglic taking 19 seconds out of Froome and Dumoulin.

Surely Thomas has the Tour won baring a fall ?

Took a serious dislike to Thomas till I saw that he also hates the sycophants and “I’ve definitely not just found out cycling is a sport this week cos look I know nicknames” wankers using the nickname G.

Anyway, third rate GT out of the way. Only a few weeks till the la Vuelta. Lopez ftw.

It didn't stop him from releasing a book called 'The World of Cycling According to G' tho, did it?
