Martin's blown up. What a brutal climb. I'm going for one of the two Frenchies.

Frome has made an amazing recovery on the climb. He's a machine.

I heard Froome being booed by spectators. He loves that you know. Loves it!

You tell me what a British is and I'll tell you if I think he's one of them. :D

Apparently he's been shown heaps more respect this year than previous years. The booing the other day was from spectators in Bardet's hometown as they passed through there. Bardet, along with Aru, is the only person who could challenge Froome for the yellow jersey win.

Absolute monster of a stage tonight/today! This is the one to watch if you're only watch one. It's going sort the GC (grand classification) out. Hopefully we'll see Bardet and his AG2RLM team take it to Froome and Team Sky. And I think they might just be able to pull it off. Both Sky and Froome have shown weaknesses. Get yer Lycra on boys and settle in with the popcorn!

There's also an early sprint after a big climb, so that will see Aussie Michael Matthews get a chance to further close the gap between him and Kittel for the Green Jersey. So excited! Never thought I'd be this happy to see Peter Sagan disqualified from the race.

Wow, crash already, with Kittel involved, and Matthews has got in the breakaway. More points for him. If he gets the intermediate sprint he'll close to within 9 points of the Green Jersey. :yes:
