Just found footage of the dick on the bike that caused te crash on stage 2. . If you look closely, you'll see the culprit sneak back out, unhurt, & go round the back of the planter.

Front wheel puncture & Orrica's Simon Carke gave him a front wheel, whilst Michael Mathews helped pace him.
*Edit to add, the UCI have docked him 2 mins & fned him 200 Swiss for taking the wheel. Favours are a regular feature in the peleton, just ask Robert Millar about the 85 Vuelta. Puts him back in 12th & finishes his chances.

Bertie has it in the bag. Shame for Porte, with the injury. Aru can't beat Contador in the mountains even with that team behind him.

Porte injured now? Hadn't heard that. His chances went with the puncture/penalty/crash two days. Uran's been largely anonymous & Aru was found out on his time trialling weakness.
If AC has any sense, he will just control the race & look to the Tour double attempt.

Porte a victim of a crash in the rain on stage 13. Knee injury - miles behind in ITT. Game over for him. Aru over 2 minutes down.etc.

Porte being injured would clarify him being beaten by Viviani today. Only interesting thing left, is if the Costa Rican guy can finish on the podium!

Mortirolo was a complete beast of a climb & Aru was found wanting. But the way Landa rode away from Bertie & Kruijswijk, Astana can FRO. He took off like he was powered by a Z750!
