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.
