I spent time in Nairobi. So have a few million locals. I've also flown at 30,000 feet. I watched the highlights of Mont Ventoux again last night.Froome three times sprinted away from Quintana on 10 degree slopes after 210 kms of cycling.
Hadn't noticed this thread.
If you read what Quintana said after the stage he mentioned that Froome would gift him the stage if Quintana worked with him to get more time on the other GC contenders. Quintana commented that he thought Froome was taking him as a lot stronger than he actually was, so bluffed for a few KM's before dropping.
The most interesting thing for me at the end of the race was J-Rod taking about 30 seconds(?) on Froome at the end of the climb. Makes me wonder what he could have done if he had reached Nieve earlier instead of sitting on the Ten Dam group.
