@chester-draws True - though if Froome gives out the most likely beneficiary will be his team mate Thomas. Only guy within real spitting distance of Froome is Dumoulin who, of course, also rode the Giro. A spectator has taken out Nibali overnight.
I foolishly got sucked into watching how Kruijswijk would get on with his bold break last night. For a while it looked like he had a chance of surviving, with Sky having used up a couple of their men and Poels and Castroviejo looking to be struggling, but a couple of the other teams annoyingly helped them chase for a while. Kruiswijk got to the bottom of Alpe d'Huez with about 20 seconds per kilometre to give up, but it soon became evident that he was giving up more than that and they caught him with 4kms to ride.
Things are interestingly poised in Team Sky - Thomas is now 1.39 ahead of Froome and, although he was clearly setting the pace for Froome up the latter part of the climb, he currently looks as strong. Still three mountain stages to go, but I wonder whether, he would - at some point - get ordered to let Froome win. Or whether they'd be left to fight it out in the final time trial.
Other big thing that happened overnight was the withdrawal of several more big sprinters. Sagan miles ahead in the green jersey now.
