Another edition of Tour Tweets of the Week – packed, absolutely packed full of controversy, conspiracy theories (okay, we’re guilty of spreading one of those) and come-hither looks. We’re loving Rogue Landa, WaWa Barguil, Baby Blackbird and Mick Jagger and wondering what to think of Bidon Bardet, Rogueless Landa, and the UCI commissaires.
We had to wait for the final sprint to the line in Peyragudes for today’s denouement. Fabio Aru accelerated with around 300 metres to go, immediately putting Chris Froome under pressure, only for the Italian to be overhauled in the final 50 metres by Romain Bardet and runner-up Rigoberto Uran. For the first time in this race, Froome struggled with the pace, finally coming in seventh, 22 seconds back on Bardet, while Aru claimed third plus four bonus seconds to move into the yellow jersey by six seconds.
