- Tour de France stage 19 – Albertville / Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc
I thought that the other day, about 30 seconds before he smashed the shit out the lot of ’em
Rolland – these guys are bloody hard. I’d be sat in the dirt feeling very sorry for myself.
Road fully soaked now up ahead – possibly less slippy than first light rain on oily/muddy roadPosted 3 years ago
I know froome always looks a bit off on the bike but he looked more gaunt and a little ill to me.

Yep, I thought the same, it looked like he was struggling to hold on to the wheel…then he attacked. Maybe his tactic is to look like he’s struggling right before he goes hard.
Edit, crashes, lots of them, at least 1 of which may well have been Porte. Looks nasty out there.Posted 3 years agocolin9Subscriber
More on Richie Porte: With the worst of the descent behind him, Richie Porte is putting in some hard yards to get back in touch with the yellow jersey group. It seems he suffered the double-whammy of a mechanical and the aforementioned stop to avoid a rider who had hit the deck. His team-mates Damiano Caruso, Marcus Burghardt and Michael Schar wait to help pace him back to the yellow jersey group.
