If Movistar allows Amador to go out in the break and the break is allowed to stay away it´s a great shot for him to try to win the stage.

Another attack from the start straight into a Cat 2 climb. Demare is off the back already and looks like he has still got a dose of the Tom Dumoulins

Mori is out. Looked in a lot of pain (shoulder?) after an off involving Gesink who is reported to be in an ambulance. Seemed to be a fairly slow uphill incident. Very bad luck for these guys

The race is all over the road and the rider info is a bit confused. Race radio is now saying Herrada is back up and riding but Thomas has a broken collarbone.

Heck yeah, they're all over the road!


We probably won't hear whose off the back (And how far back) until the last climb.

Edit:
4 riders 30min off the back during the second HC descent!

The 4 riders off the back are holding steady at 36min back.


And the last climb is coming up.

Completely OT but I've flown into Chambery airport a number of times and it is a bit exciting. You get a lot closer to these mountains than you would like

Meanwhile it looks like Demare has lost hope because he has let his two FdJ minders go up the road

Froome has a technical needs a bike change. Aru and Quintana immediately attack!

All back together because other riders weren't happy
