    Agreed. Astana doesn't have the firepower to control the front like Sky does. Aru will wish he didn't piss Froome off later in the week when a break needs to be caught and there's 6 Sky riders at the front and no one from Astana to be found.

    Indeed that is true.
    Would have been interesting if Porte and Martin hadn't crashed.

    sky and quick step will still be chasing any breaks, they just mow through everyone in the climbing, it's unbelievable. Where is Vinokourov when you need him?

    No, if porte was still in it, BMC would be chasing everything like they did in some of the opening stages. Riding like they had yellow and giving sky a free ride. I just saw a new flash that they changed the route of the remaining stages to all finish on that same hill.

    great tactics today, lots of excitement and chaos. Why is Dan Martin pulling for free? What an idiot.

    What a bum Aru is, losing 20seconds on a day like today and giving the jersey back. I guess that is what happens when you have no team left.

    Sky started to ride hard when no Astana teammates were left around 10K and made Aru's situation as bad as possible. Kwiato is an absolute monster, he probably could have soloed to a win yesterday if that was his job.

    Either homie gets a raise when his contract is up, or he goes somewhere else as captain of the ship. He's so sick.
