Great ride from G, if he can pull a decent TT out tomorrow it's his.

Just a shame that Froome's times were messed up so he didn't get the stage win. Even Dumolin was shocked in his "winners" interviews.

Very pleased for Thomas. He has been in control of the Tour all the way through and has shown great calmness when attacked.

Thoroughly deserved win.

Seen nothing official but supposedly a policeman stood on the timing mat which caused the timing error.

Frome was robbed of the stage win.

Didnít realise that not only was G the first man to win Alp díHuez in yellow he was also the first British rider to win on Alp díHuez.
