No Yellow Change (Yet?)

Train stops riders in their tracks. (Click for video)

Rarely does the peloton come to a standstill, but today it did so momentarily for a passing train!

Stage 16 victory 

In a single-man breakaway from the breakaway, Team Movistar’s Rui Costa scored a solo stage 16 win, 42 seconds ahead of his closest threats and more than 11 minutes ahead of the yellow jersey group.  This does nothing however to change Chris Froome’s overall standing– his more than four-minute hold on le maillot jaune– despite apparently increasing efforts by his biggest rival, two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador.  Even with the Alps to come, it’s obvious the leading riders are beginning to see Le Tour’s end.
