This stage is a cracker already! Matrhews just sprinted past DeGent up a hill to deny him getting max points in the King Of The Mountain to protect his team mate's lead in that classification.

Matthews also has the chance to score over Kittel in the time trial. Sky aren't panicking with 120k to go and a 5min gap to the break away.

There's no sprint points in the time trial though. From memory tomorrow night's stage has a similar sprint early on like today's. If Matthews takes that then he'll be in Green. Will make for a fascinating final sprint on the Champs Eleesai (sorry, spell check has got nothing).

The Col de Galibier (sp?) is a beast of a last climb. I wanna see Bardet take on Froome. Viva la Frenchie!

First de Col du Telégraphe then Col du Galibier. I watch the Dutch television with two very good reporters. One has done many Tours.

Yeah. Bittersweet. It would have been good to see their battle on the Shomps.

They're essentially the one climb. There's only a tiny downhill between them. 36kms long and over 2000m vertical climb! Horror show!

It would be good to see Contador win today. Not sure if he'll have the herbs to get up the Col(s)
