    This Froome stuff is doing my nut.

    It's obviously in his contract that he is #2 to Wiggins and therefore he does the super-domestique job: something he is doing very well. It's not like he's losing time to anyone else by waiting for Wiggins (like Tejay had to with Cadel the first time he cracked). It's also completely missing the radar that no-one else has stayed with Froome on the climbs when he's gone away, or as if Wiggins hasn't done plenty of work himself (witness yesterday) or won the TT by the best part of a minute. Froome is the superior accelerator over a high gradient/summit finish.

    That's even without thinking about how all the other teams would have handled him had they believed he was a potential winner from day one. He signed on for Sky this year AFTER last year's Vuelta when this whole scenario played itself out in stereo, when Cobo broke Wiggins on the Angliru and went past Froome on the GC too. He knew what the deal was, so I wish people would drop this ****.

    That was just wow. Never seen him sprint from that far out. Cant believe he was paying $10 on TAB to win this stage.

    Really great sprint from Cavendish. The biggest margin in a sprint finish for a while too, I think.

    Froome wiped the floor with everyone, and then Wiggins went a minute faster for good measure.

    Evans lost six minutes.

    Amazing win by Cav but could see Sagan getting him next year. Was just out of position coming around the corner, if he was on the wheel of Goss he could have jumped the both imo.

    Very proud moment. Never thought I'd see a Brit win the tour and to have a number 2 as well is just a stunning performance. The dominance Sky asserted reminded me of the old days when US Postal just used to run things. Happy for Wiggo cos he seems like such a decent bloke who's been through his fair share of ****.

    So....Bradley Wiggins was born in Belgium. Between the South African cricket team and Belgian cycling team it's good to see England is still **** at everything.

    Sooooo do Team Sky lose points now for carrying on the pace-making after Valverde (leader at the time) crashed in La Vuelta?
