Anyone following it this year?

I sincerely hope Froome wins it this year. The only chance he has is if Wiggins has a bad day though. It would have been great if he hadn't waited for Wiggo today but alas...

Yeah the past few stages have been exciting. Voeckler's win.

Shattered that Evans couldn't gain anything on Wiggins these past couple of stages. He even lost time on him last night after his failed attack but he just doesn't have the support around him. Whereas Sky are all behind Wiggins.

Disappointed with Ryder Hejesdal's exit.

Hoping Nibali or van den Broek take out the yellow if Cadel can't get the job done

That would be nice but I think Froome is the only one who could actually do it.

And I really don't understand what Cadel did yesterday. You'd expect him to know if he's good enough to pull off such an attack. It was painful to see him not even being able to follow Van Garderen.

Froome is a team player, to his detriment. He'll have his time soon.

Well, definitely a time trialer's race this year. Congrats, Mr. Wiggins.

With all the TT's this Tour was made for Wiggins.

Let's hope for a more exciting Tour next year with more mountains and Contador, Schleck, Froome (hopefully in another team but that's unlikely) and Wiggins.

TBH, you didn't miss much. It was quite boring this year. Only two riders in the yelloy jersey. That doesn't say everything but it does say something.

And Cadel was horrible.

Surprised no one has commented in the thread this year.

I think Froome has basically sealed the win with his TT victory today. Contador's only shot is to knock him off his bike.

A little early for that. You should be banking your blood now so you can transfuse yourself right before the race next summer.
