Congrats to Froome and Sky. Last three days or so showed some chinks in Froome's armor, which should encourage those who will challenge next year. And sorry, but I can't think of a Tour winner in history who looks more awkward on a bike than Froome, his position is just all elbows and bowed head.
Contador a lesser version of his former Tour self. Not too long ago, it was Contador's relentess multiple jumps that no one could answer.
Shame to see Evans fading away.
Nice ride by Kreuziger, Had stopped seeing him as a contender for anything of note.
Although I feel for Valverde after his wheel issue, it really put all the Movistar cards on the table for Quintana which was a good thing. What a talent.
Sagan was a runaway winner of the points jersey, but he was almost anonymous.
Cavendish will be asking himself some serious questions.
How long will Porte be happy to watch others win?
What happened to all the French up-and-comers?
Fantastic Tour route for the 100th. Chapeau to ASO.
And I saw some of the worst wheel/bike changes in this race. Sometimes it was truly amateur hour.
Note to Prudhomme- go out and get a proper car sponsor for the Tour. How could anyone want to sit in the back of Skoda for 3 weeks?
Crowds were great, but the lead moto cops have got to do a better job discouraging the idiots from interfering and let's put a quick end to the the recent colored smoke flare trend. Remember when Belli got thrown off the Giro in 2001 for punching Simoni's nephew, who was allegedly verbally abusing him. We saw plenty of riders swinging at fans in this years race, Froome included. What's it going to take to get the fans to respect the race and riders.
Great 100th Tour, glad I went to see it!
