Drama on the Tourmalet

What a day to be French... Pinot takes the victory and Alaphilippe somehow, somehow, manages to stay with the rest of the GC contenders to hold on to Yellow as Thomas and Fulgsang lose time. 

 

Quintana and Yates are out of the battle for the race lead.

Fair to say this man @alafpolak knows how to hammer! 17% grade and probably snagged some KOMs along the way!

Jeff Goldblum’s been doing some aero testing

We assume.

He’s been at Specialized’s “Win Tunnel” in California and he was wearing a skin suit and a helmet.

We don’t know much about Goldblum’s cycling credentials, but he did make an appearance in understated pro cycling spoof, Tour de Pharmacy.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the road.cc team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
