Froome did look spent. Suspect it was relief more than disappointment at missing out on polkadots. Says something when we expect him, with a 5 min coushin in yellow, to go out and win the stage.
Interesting Tour tactics by sky though to effectively go out and win it on the first mountain finish (up Ax 3). Usually end up waiting till the last couple of hard stages to see any GC attacking in recent years. Increasingly felt like Froome was just hanging on in the last few stages as Quintana and Purito got stronger.
Edit: almost forgot... 3 stage wins, some great attacking riding, yellow jersey... chapeau Christopher Froome
