looking like an interesting next 2 days, a great tour this year I think, new faces, new plot, exciting finish intrigue ... I was glad to see Nairo win, and some great downhill racing.. tomorrow will be fascinating, I think yellow will go down to the wire.

Or a Columbian on drugs. (I mean they all must be drugging, right).  ;)

Bernal hopefully now.  Although they are all on drugs, he is Colombian and has thus been mountain climbing and cycling at altitude since he took up the sport (as did Quintana), Alaphilippe was never a touted GC rider, not a climber until yesterday and even Lance Armstrong was Ďastoundedí by his sudden mountain ability.

Bernal (as long as he reaches Paris) in yellow and white!  Bardet in polka dot (unless Bernal takes the cat 4 points and he gets none tomorrow - highly unlikely and Iím not sure there are enough available), and the joy of watching Sagan hopefully get the green and be his usual brilliant self.

What will Ineos do when they get the Movistar rider too? 3 grand tours, four grand tour winners in the team plus the best domestiques!
