    I think the Mayor banned the sale of alcohol locally before the stage which considering the economic value to the local area was impressive.

    Yeah, I doubt Froome can win the Vuelta as well as this Tour but I don't know if that will stop him having a try anyway...he seems to be a highly motivated individual!

    I'm presuming that at a point Thomas will be told to sacrifce himself riding for Froome so that he can get a stage win/grab some time and thus the 59 seconds will disapper 'naturally'. Although you are right in that they will keep them both in contention for as long as possible; I just think that if it comes to having to choose (and times are similar) Froome will get it on the chance that he can have a crack at the Vuelta and go for the triple.

    Ah, when I were a lad that was a cranial endo. Only the most skillzed kids could do those. Sadly my Grifter was far too heavy for that for me to attempt it coughs

    Also what is the situation for Thomas/Froome? Will Thomas be allowed to attack him, is there any possibility that they will start attacking each other? If Froome is still behind Thomas on the TT, could he lose more time?

    My 2p's worth: Froome must be going for the 3 grand tour wins in one year, so Thomas isn't going to get a look until it gets to a point where Froome is so far out pf the picture that it becomes silly (and considering his brake away ride in the Giro that may be quite a big silly).

    Hopefully they will try and get Thomas in the yellow jersey for a few stages though.

    3 seconds isn't really a 'record' now is it...

    Ah crap, I was planning on doing this next Thursday. Kristoff is bound to be better than me with all that ultra riding in his legs...
