Chris Froome seized the race lead on Friday with an impressive acceleration 2.5km from the line on the first of three mountain stages. He retained it over the week-end where he fended off numerous attacks to take his third victory and Sky’s fifth in this race, showing he’s in fine form for the Tour de France. Aggressive riding from Romain Bardet and Dan Martin, particularly over the last three decisive days, landed the duo podium spots as runner-up and third-place respectively in what was a gripping race.
Two French riders battling for the win. Baby Blackbird shaking them all up on the Madelaine. What more could you possibly want from a Queen Stage? Add in Fabian Cancellera being utterly fabulous in Switzerland and I thought I was dreaming!!
