Another chaotic day served up plenty of drama, even if some of it made hard watching. In the end the finish was destined to come down to that final-lung busting charge up the Mur de Huy, and Joaquim Rodriguez played it just right. A superb effort by Chris Froome to claim second place moved him into the overall lead by a single second.
