Vanblissen and Fedrigo
14 Juillet. Pyrennes. Côte de Bougarber, the first of three 4th cat climbs, 1.4 km, 6.2% average. Kenneth Vanbilsen and Pierrick Fédrigo are riding ahead. Team Movistar is chasing. Gap is 13'44"  83 km to go. The finish is uphill, on a never climbed climb:  La Pierre Saint Martin.

Warren Barguil crashes, he's back on bike but 3' behind the peloton.  He's expected to do well today, fighting for White and for the stage victory maybe. Now it's more complicated.

Côte de Vielleségure (4th cat) - 1.7 km, 5.9% average. Sinkeldam drops back to help Barguil, they catch the tail of the peloton and it's sweet to see Sinkeldam gently poking on Barguil's shoulder.
The breakers slow down and the peloton too. Mechanical for Mark Cavendish, a small crash for Lotto-Jumbo's Tom Leezer. Meanwhile Barguil needs the doctor care to treat his many blessures.
Climbers' day, but there is an intermediate sprint. Greipel won it while Sagan is only 7th: the Gorilla is back in Green
Embedded image permalinkCôte de Montory (4th cat) - 1.8 km, 6.3% average.  Green grass, blue foggy far peaks. The race is aproaching the last climb up to La Pierre-Saint-Martin, HC of 15.3 km with an average gradient of 7.4%. Gap is down to 2'.
Embedded image permalinkThe first ramp is harsh. Teklehaimanot gets dropped. Sprinters do 'gruppetto'. The whole Movistar is in front.
12 km to go, Vanbilsen caught, Fedrigo is leading solo. Behind Bardet gets dropped, as well as Talansky and Dan Martin, as well as Pinot, Keldermann and Peraud.

Froome goes in front with Poels, Port and Thomas.
8 km to go also Barguils gets dropped. Fugslang openly exorts Nibali to resist, to conter, to not give up. The Sharck looks lost.

4 km to go the road is a little flatter but Froome's advantage keeps increasing. No mercy. And the crowd goes crazy.

Bravo Gesink: 4th. Contador finishes 3' later, Nibali 4'.
Game over?

Chris Froome:
"I’m at a loss for words. That was unbelievable. I couldn’t believe it when I asked the guys to push hard a little bit and we were hearing on the radio that the big names were getting dropped. It was textbook from the team, the guys rode such a good race. I’m over the moon to be able to finish it off for them."
"Now we’re just going to have to take it on a daily basis. I’m in such a great position now and with such team around me. Guys like Richie Porte coming second, G just a few places back in fifth – it just shows the calibre of riders I’ve got supporting me. Hopefully now we can just ride a defensive race. Let’s see – there’s still a very long way to go to Paris but of course I’m ecstatic about how it went today.
When I heard [the time gaps] on the radio it was like music to the ears, especially this early in the race. There are some really big time gaps today which I’m quite surprised about, seeing as we only had the one climb on the final. The one thing that comes to mind for me is that maybe some of the guys didn’t look after themselves quite that well through the rest day yesterday, or maybe came out of the rest day feeling quite heavy. My guys were great. It was a dream day for us."
Embedded image permalinkVincenzo Nibali:
“It was a difficult day. I couldn't keep the pace. I could not breathe properly. I couldn't find the right pedalling pace. It was as if I didn't have any strength left. I could hardly follow my own team-mates. I tried to pace my effort, but I dropped after four kilometres and decided to climb more gradually. For sure Chris Froome hammered us badly. But we all lost time, all the favourites did: Van Garderen, Rodriguez, even Contador. We all thought we were better. It's going to be difficult now. Physically I feel pretty well. But I can't give anymore. I'm not the same Vincenzo Nibali as last year.”

Thibaut Pinot:
"J'ai su très vite que j'allais exploser aujourd'hui / I quickly understood that it was not my day!" 

Robert Gesink:
"Great day! Thanks for all the kind reactions!"
“I’m exhausted, but happy. I saw people getting dropped but felt good myself and decided to be crazy and give it a go. We didn’t discuss anything, but I knew that when the big men began accelerating, they would go too fast for me. I anticipated and it worked out well today. Yes, stupid actually. I thought about it for a moment, but looking back, I should have done that. I don’t quite realise what has happened. Today, I had a super day, I felt strong. I’m happy. I wonder what’s in store for me tomorrow.”

Tejay van Garderen:
"Sky definitely put on quite the performance. I tried my best to stay with them. When it got too much for me, I tried to stay in my rhythm and focused on getting to the top. I don't think today was my best day. But it wasn't all bad. I am still keeping a good GC (general classification) position. The first mountain day is always tricky. We have done almost two weeks without climbing any real mountains. So it can be quite a shock to the system, especially after a rest day. I feel like it should go better from here. I am definitely still happy about where we are sitting."

Bauke Mollema:
“I just couldn’t go fast. At the bottom of the climb, the speed was so high and I just couldn’t follow. I tried to go as fast as possible to the top and I was with Nibali all the time. But I just didn’t have any power in the legs. It was a really easy start until the last 20-25 kilometers; it was just easy all day. But then you knew the last climb was going to be full gas but, yeah, I don’t know… I was hoping for more today and it just didn’t go as I wanted.
Our group was going okay in the last five kilometers, but I think in the steep part we lost a lot of time. In the last kilometer I knew I had to give everything to the finish. But in the end it was a lot of time lost today.
After a couple of kilometers I was already at my maximum. On the steepest parts if felt like I was almost standing still. You have hardly any info, but you know you are going slow. Too slow. I don’t have an explanation - I really felt good until today.  I knew that today would tell me something about the field; it was a surprise, though, what I found, and not in what I had hoped to see. The gaps are substantial, but the GC battle for me is not over. Let’s see for the next days.”

Romain Bardet:
"C'est une journée comme on aimerait ne jamais en connaître sur un Tour de France ou même sur n'importe quelle compétition. Nous n'avons escaladé qu'un col du Tour et il reste encore beaucoup d'opportunités pour nous rattraper. J'ai passé une très mauvaise journée dès le départ, c'était très difficile. Maintenant, il faut rester positif et penser à demain. / It's one of those days you wouldn't ever meet in a Tour de France or in any other race. We just climbed one mountain in this Tour and there are still a lot of chances for us. I had a very bad day since the start, it has been very hard. Now we must stay positive and look forward."

Richie Porte:
"It’s one day in the Tour. We can’t get too carried away. We’ve seen in 2013 the first and second on the stage and then the disaster there. So we’re not getting too far in front of ourselves, but it’s still a fantastic feeling. I sort of felt a little bit bad picking [Quintana’s] pocket but it’s a race. Chris was absolutely fantastic today. I take my hat off to Geraint Thomas as well. He was still on GC and he could have sat behind me. He didn’t, he put in and did a great pull softening them up."

Adam Yates:
“I was in a good position because we took it easy in the team time trial so I am probably a little bit fresher than some of the big GC guys. I was distanced when Contador was dropped and I just rode at my own pace. I worked my way back up and I caught up to (Tony) Gallopin and we worked together to catch the other guys. I couldn’t go much harder than that, I was pretty much full gas.”

Nairo Quintana:
“It was a really hard stage, with hellish temperatures and big pace all day, especially since we took command of the peloton. We wanted to test our rivals’ condition, see how they were going, and we found a superior Chris Froome. He was really strong and we must accept that. We’ll try to find a strategy or some alliances to try and gain some time back or, at least, keeping our actual position. We must keep going day-by-day. We saw in previous races that he struggled a bit at the end in races finales and at the end of the three weeks; we will hope he cracks some day or that I find myself better than I did today. My winning chances? They shrank a bit today, but I keep dreaming about yellow, and will give my everything to snatch it.”

Alejandro Valverde:
“To be honest, it was a big blow by Froome today. We did a nice race, but we’ve got to be realistic: he was over the rest today. Let’s see if he can continue to do so for the rest of the race. Sky kept a high pace all the way when they took over, I tried to jump away to drop Froome’s team-mates back, but they were strong. It’s been a hard nine days before this stage, and the steep climb, combined with the heat… made everything impossible for many. Now, for us it’s a matter of keeping what we’ve got or improving our result if we’re able to. The Tour is not over at all, though it’s becoming harder to win. Still, we can hope for everything when it’s Nairo. Others like Contador, Nibali, Purito, Van Garderen cracked today, and the same can happen to us or any other rivals up to the end of the race.”

Warren Barguil:
“I am thankful to my teammates and especially Ramon [Sinkeldam] who waited for me to bring me back to the bunch. In the first kilometer of the Col de Soudet I could get my rhythm pretty well. After that I suffered from my wounds and dropped from the group with the favorites. I am a tough guy so I will not give up easily. Despite the crash and the wounds I felt pretty good on the final climb, so I am satisfied about that.”

Alexis Vuillermoz:
"Une journée très difficile avec la chaleur. J'ai géré la montée, j'ai vu que mes leaders étaient en difficulté, après un temps d’hésitation on m’a dit de ne pas me préoccuper d'eux. J'ai fait des efforts et j'ai eu un point de coté durant la montée. Je ne sais pas si c'est la chaleur, la fatigue ou la pression qui retombe après les derniers jours, mais j’ai peut être du mal à me remettre en route."
[A very difficult day because of the heat. I managed my energy on the climb, I saw that my leaders were in trouble and after some exitation I have been told to not care about them. I had to do a big effort and sufferend on the climb. I don't know if it's the heat, the fatigue, or the pressure after the last days, but I had some problem to get started again."]

Andre Greipel:
"1st time I could go on the podium on mountain top finish-thanks to @Lotto_Soudal we can have green for another day in our rows! A demain..."

Dan Martin:
"No words. Completely empty as soon as the climb started. Dreaded rest day effect perhaps but we regroup and be back in the game 2moro"

Alberto Contador:
"Mal dia hoy en el Tour,toca descansar,analizar todo friamente y pensar el lo que esta por venir."
“It was a complicated day. I knew it was going to be a climb, where you could lose a lot of time, if you weren’t in form and that’s what happened. It was the stage after the rest day, where one could lose a lot of time. I couldn’t breath and I still can’t – so I couldn’t get rid of the lactic acid in my legs and I couldn’t follow the pace. It was a bad day, and we’ve seen that Froome was better than everybody else. I was unable to follow the pace, not only of Froome but also of other riders”, comments Alberto Contador before elaborating. This is cycling, you have good days and you have bad days. I wasn’t able to see much of the race but I saw that Froome was able to accelerate away, when he wanted. Movistar’s pace was not much of a problem to me, but the pace that Sky set was higher. At some point, I had to follow my own pace and find the rhythm and I’ve definitely had better days”. 

John Degenkolb:

"First mountain top finish done...unfortunately some more to come"

Serge Pauwels:

"My initial goal was to be in the long breakaway but after trying in those first few kilometres I felt I had good legs after the rest day. In the final I was surprised that I was able to follow the best for such a long time. I didn’t want to get in the way of the real GC guys so at first I gave them some space but then I saw Nibali got dropped and I still had good legs. I just kept riding within my own limits. This is a great result for me. I am happy to have been given so much confidence by the team."

Peter Sagan:

"Looking forward to getting my jersey back:-)"

Joaquim Rodríguez:
"De los días más duros encima de la bicicleta!! No recuerdo el llegar tan vacío como hoy!!😰😰😰😰 @letour @TDWsport"

Andrew Talansky:
"The @Ride_Argyle boys were perfect but I wasn't. Never nice having a day like today but time to move onwards, plenty more mtns coming!"

Mark Cavendish:
"Well I don't think today was supposed to be as hard as it was! It's going to be a grim remainder of @letour for the gruppetto!"

Embedded image permalinkTony Gallopin:
“With the team we agreed that I would see how far I got on the last climb. Tim and Adam could join a big group that had a chance to stay ahead. The first goal was to win the intermediate sprint with André, which we did, and then it were the teams of the GC riders who set a high pace on the way to the climb. I was amazed I could hang on and even when big names got dropped I could stay in the yellow jersey group. The steady pace of Sky was perfect for me. It was only when they raised the tempo and ten riders were left that I was distanced. Of course I’m happy with the ninth place today and the seventh place overall. The legs felt very good, even when the group was already considerably reduced. On the one hand this place on GC is very nice, on the other hand I might get less space to aim for a stage win. But we’ll look at that again with the team and we’ll discuss what the next days will bring.”

Alex Dowsett:

"Better day from me, new stitches seem to be working much better, as were my legs. Congrats to @TeamSky, we threw quite a lot at them today."
