I thought they were neutralizing it amongst themselves to wait for Nibali.

Apparently not.

I'm absolutely biased, but Thomas isn't the most fun rider to watch. Wheelsucking all the way, just like yesterday. I know it's teamwork but still. Clain your yellow jersey!

Tactically he played it perfectly and wasn't selfish at all unlike Froome yesterday. He sat on all the way until the last 100m and let TD pull him. He needs to go all in and refuse to work for Froome because he can take this thing to Paris if he wants..

Roglic also sucking behind Nibali and then rolls before him over line.

Yes very brave ride but should have maybe sat on more if he wanted to win the stage. He wasted a LOT of energy in that first attack with Landa...

Yeah I don't think there's anyway to get around it unless you're being super biased -- Froome attacked the yellow jersey. Period. That's two days in a row he rode at the detriment to the yellow jersey. Fortunately for Thomas, Dumoulin had enough to pull him back for him and Thomas has a better sprint than any of them..

Did Thomas really just called Froome the best rider ever? :roll:
