Tour Tweets of the Week Extra: The yin and yang of Wiggins and Froome

It was a mountain stage that would finally shake up the GC, they said. Finally, there would be attacks! Nope. That didn’t happen – because once again the strongest challenger to the maillot jaune was a teammate. Should Christopher Froome have waited in those last few kilometres for a tired Bradley Wiggins or should he have gone off to chase down Alejandro Valverde and win the stage? Should Wiggins have told Froome to leave him and take the victory, considering that they had dropped anyone remotely a threat to the yellow jersey? Well, the Twittersphere was spinning with their answers to those questions. As usual with these types of posts, this is a collection of the diverse opinions from famous tweeters and everyday fans. In no specific order.
