Big day today, some  monster climbs.  If Froome can maintain the gap, or improve it, over Nibili, with the time trial to come after the rest day then he will be in a strong position.

Last day that matters for the GC contenders tomorrow.  One horrible "wall", the Angliru, to climb safely to keep his lead and Froome, and Sky, have done the Tour and Vuelta double.

Looking forward to tomorrows stage. Reckon there will be attacks from the start, especially from Nibali and Contador.

Great day (apart from the Villa), Contador goes out in style winning the stage and Froome wins the Vuelta.
Whilst you can't overlook Contador's history he is old school in the way he races and will be missed.
Great achievment by Froome.

One of only three to do the TdF & Vuelta double but I think that Froome is the only one to do it when the Vuelta has been a three week race and after the TdF
