Yesterday’s time trial result gave us all the hope that it would be a battle royale for the top spot on the podium today. The Froome/Quintana battle was more like a tiny, late skirmish so in that sense it didn’t live up to expectations. But it was a most amazing stage nonetheless. And the excitement came in pairs. Lots of pairs.
Heartbreak on the line in a breathless sprint finish, and a mountain top ride to glory. Get the tissues ready – it’s a rollercoaster of emotions on today’s FINAL KILOMETRE.
