    Froome attacks...leaves the carcasses of his rivals strewn upon the climb up La Pierre-Saint-Martin, a 9.5 mile climb with a 7.4 grade. Froome took MINUTES out of the top rivals and now holds a nearly 3 minute lead over American TeJay Vangarderen.

    Tomorrow looks to be another epic climb and then in a few days the Alp D" Huez. Froome looks a lot like Armstrong in his acceleration against the best climbers. I am sure there will be suspicion. The fact that Quintana, a pure climber, can't hang makes you wonder what the boy had for breakfast.

    Nario prefers longer climbs...he will shine the last week. If you watched Froome/Sky they pretty much let Team Movistar do the pace setting and really didn't do much until Froome "dropped the hammer" in the last 1/2 of the climb.

    All Froome has to do now is pace and mark any acceleration. He has the luxury of not having to attacking unless he sees an easy opportunity to gain more time gap.

    Fridays stage, a great time for a group of flyers to make a successful break. Jens maybe.. no he is commentaing not riding but a great stage for him or maybe Sagan.

    I actually had the pleasure of riding with Jens along with Tiago Machado a few years back. Hung with them until they decided to drop me on a long climb.....different world altogether. Jens is the man. Shut up Legs.
