Why o Why are teams helping Sky before they burned their matches. Let Kruiswijk go and beat Froome on the Alpe.

Are Lotto setting up a double sling-shot for Roglic? Or will he of the coat-hanger shoulders hold on?

Meanwhile there are no sprinters left in the race...
Kruijswijk is the main GC man for LottoNl, so no sling-shot. Roglic is there in the shadows/ as backup to see how far he can go in a GT.

Can’t see SK holding all of this lead given the amount of flat before the Alp, should be a close finale!

It's tailwind towards the Alpe in the valley, should help him at least a bit.

I will never understand why non-Sky teams (Bahrain-Merida, Movistar) help them win.

They deserve to lose if that is how they race.

Hard to get a selfie with Nibali for IG without a cell phone, the internet or IG.

Although, I’m guessing it’s just a reflection of our modern culture.

Nibali should press charges against that fan.
