    I forgot to charge my I Pad so I’ll post results later. It’s kind of a so so day of racing anyway I think.

    Since today is a stage for the sprinters, it’s fair to point out which top sprinters have been eliminated ! Mark Cavendish, Andre Greipel, Marcel Kittel, Fernando Gaviria and Dylan Groenewegen have all either abandoned or been eliminated by the time requirements! It’s accurate to say that Peter Sagan will once again win this year’s Green Jersey.

    A quick look,at tomorrow’s stage 14. It’s a hard stage to figure out ! It’s starts out as fairly flat but then it gets difficult. I expect Team Sky will allow,a breakaway to escape as long,as no threat to their Yellow Jersey exists. However the last climb is very steep at gradient up to 18% at one point. I expect some action amongst the GC contenders and wouldn’t be surprised if Chris Froome might attack to try to gain some time. The final 15 minutes of stage should be interesting but I doubt the stage will be won by any of the main GC contenders! GL

    Stage 14 is now in the second hilly part and as expected Team Sky and main GC contenders have allowed a breakaway group to ride clear. Peleton is now about 10 minutes behind. I still expect some attacks by GC contenders on final climb.

    As I predicted, the main GC contenders are NOT going to,win today’s stage as they slide over 15 minutes behind. This doesn’t mean there won’t be some excitement as the Yellow Jersey group approach end of stage. Should be interesting !

    Froome, Dumoulin and Thomas finish in a tight group so no change in top 3 in GC race ! Great day for all 3 as another tough finishing stage and they pretty much gained time on almost all other contenders. Notable exception was Roglic who took back about 10 seconds but he’s far enough back that I doubt the top 3 are overly concerned.

    Tomorrow’s stage 15 will challenge a new category 1 climb Pic De Nore. I doubt if we will see any big GC attacks as the climb is far away from finishing line. Rest day awaits on Monday and then come the Pyrenees! I think once again Team Sky will allow a breakaway to escape as long as there’s no GC contenders in group !

    It was interesting listening to Geraint Thomas talking about the prognosis of who will win the Tour. He did say that he’d prefer himself winning over Froome which I thought was huge. Of course he also mentioned how foolish they would look if they allowed Tom Dumoulin to win ! I’m really curious to see the latest updated odds ! His comments makes me feel that odds would be getting close to even !

    Those odds are similar to what I have seen.

    Today’s State is going pretty much as expected except just recently Dan Martin has broken away on his own. Since he’s over 6 minutes behind in the GC race, the Yellow Jersey has allowed him to go. R Majka is leading as he’s trying to hold off a group of 7 riders left from a breakaway group.

    I think Dan Martin’s is wasting his time as there’s no real time to be gained as Peleton will chase him down soon I think.

    Today’s stage won by Magnus Cort Nielsen for his first ever stage win. He was followed by Ion Izagirre and Bauke Bollema. The main GC contenders too no interest in contesting today’s stage and the standings remain unchanged ! Rest day tomorrow as Pyrenees await !

    Latest William Hill odds !
    Geraint Thomas -115
    Chris Froome. +120
    Tom Dumoulin 9/2

    It remains to see IF Team Sky will let Thomas win this year’s Tour ! The safest way to insure a win would be to have Froome and Thomas simply work together to hold off any attack by a very tough Tom Dumoulin. An 11 second lead held by Froome over Tom Dumoulin could easily be erased in the Time Trial. I believe the only way that Froome will win this year’s Tour is IF Thomas should have a bad day in the Pyrenees. Of course should that happen, Tom Dumoulin becomes a real problem for Sky ! I will give a look ahead at upcoming mountain stages and give my opinions which probably will be rather worthless! ��

    The change in my mind has far more to do with the fact that Tom Dumoulin is so close than who is more likely to outfinish between Thomas and Froome in the Pyrenees. Froome has not only won 4 Tours Already but always comes on strong in the final weeks of a 3 week Tour. However IF Froome goes and Dumoulin is capable of hanging onto his wheel in the mountains, i like Dumoulin’s chances in the closing Time Trial with only a 11 second deficit ! That’s what makes the final few stages in the Pyrenees so intriguing!
