Stage 17: One More Minute.

The current King of the Mountains has proven he’s also king of stage 17.  This victory du jour marks a second stage win for Poland’s Rafal Majka, as he remains in polka dots another day.

This Tour’s shortest stage by no means any easier, it saw no change to the GC top six– except nearly one more minute of lead time for le maillot jaune.  And Italy moves that much closer to Paris.  Of all the riders who won’t be there, I’m sorry to see Simon Gerrans added to that list.

The jersey wearers, sans white, start another day in the Pyrenees.

Stage 13: Leading On Up…

They’ve reached the Alps, and as always the only way is up.  The same can be said for the shoulders of le maillot jaune, as Vincenzo Nibali comfortably upped his overall Tour lead with his third stage win that earned him the “King of the Mountains” polka dot jersey today as well.  The big ascents have only just begun, because if stage 13 was hard, tomorrow will come.

Nibali's solo breakaway finish in Chamrousse strengthens his Tour dominance.
