Froome responds to all naysayers with attacks on the flats and descents, and even runs up Ventoux after pile up crash with moto! Astana and Movistar try and try but never break Sky. Cav and Kittel both have their moments.
Sagan - well he probably has more fun than anyone and in the process wins stages, pulls one handed wheelie across uphill finish line, plays domestique and crushes field for points.
Rainy hairball descent by Izaguirre and he drops Nibali! Who by the way crashed the day before when he and Froome both crashed while they were attacking on the descent!
Plus on the final stage, as mentioned, Kittel throws a wheel, Griepel makes a last minute bike change just before the sprint and beats Sagan to line.
I'm definitely a little depressed that it's over. Happened to be up early on Saturday and caught the start of the stage live, but couldn't keep my eyes open to watch the whole thing. Went back to bed, then caught the end of it later.
I love how they said about one rider, as he crossed the finish line, "He had at least one crash that we know of.......there might've been another......" Poor guy was laboring up the wet hill to the line as the announcer said this.
