Tour de France

Wasn’t expecting to see so much of a few of the fans mid stage today! :-O My father in law saw the streaker running ahead of the leaders, but it wasn’t until we rewound the recording that we saw his two buddies drop trow as he took off!

Still watching the recording for the finish...

Yes I saw that- the guy dropped his drawers at the top of the climb and ran alongside the leader for 8 or 10 seconds until he could no longer keep up. I didn't see his friends do anything, however, and I've already erased it. The funniest thing was just as they cut to the camera with the bollocky guy Phil Liggett said something like "Look at all the fans who've come out to the top of the hill here to cheer the racers on!" Then as soon as he saw the guy he apologized & said NBC has no control over the cameras.

Another great race. I honestly never heard of the guy who won today's stage, but congrats to him whoever he is! Somehow my man Bennett still clings to the green jersey, and I hope to ride Roglic all the way to Paris. But it's still way too early for definitive predictions...

Can't wait for the Alps the next few days. Always my fave stages. If you've never watched the TdF and this thread has made you curious, the next few days are a great introduction to the event.

That was my favorite part also!
From a pure lover of athleticism that was one helluva effort from beginning to end from Kaemna.
I haven’t seen anything to lead me to believe any team has anything for the attack of Yellow

Great teamwork & self sacrifice on that last brutal climb by the American lad Kuss to keep Roglic in the yellow jersey today. There is a ton of young talent in the Tour this year. We'll be hearing a lot of these names for the next several years.

It goes to show the role of teamwork in the Tour. Ineos made some stupid decisions building their team this year. They really could have used Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.*



*I may sound like I know what I'm talking about, but I'm really just parroting things Phil Liggett said that make sense to me. I don't know nuthin'.
 
I thought Sepp was going to take yesterday’s stage until he was called back. Earlier in the stage, it was good to see Landa’s team up front, trying to challenge yellow, but they didn’t have it.

Incredible how close the 1st 3 are after 18 stages.
But...
Those two men from Slovenia are still the class of the field.
How many actually have a shot at the win?

I'm really starting to think Roglic is going to win it! Rare for a TdF to be undecided this late in the race. It's very exciting.
