    No. Can't watch Sky cruise to another win after the whitewash that was the whole Froome thing. I mean, he certainly doesn't deserve being manhandled or spat on (that is very poor), but it stinks, in my opinion.

    They haven't won it yet.

    It was only an asthma inhaler. How much could it have helped?

    Not banned. Controlled. He had one high reading during a race and the results can vary wildly depending on how dehydrated you are.

    None of the teams seem willing to have a crack at taking the race over from Sky. Maybe we will see something in the final week. Sky seem to have all the competition covered and are riding intelligently. I do miss the days of climbers using 42x25 gears up the hills though. Watching people spin up the mountains should be a violation of what is cool on a bike.

    Philippe Gilbert very lucky to escape this one with only a fractured kneecap.

    Well ain't it rather coincidentally funny how Froome was unable to "puff" himself to a stage win let alone the tour this year. Full health unlike the Giro and yet out of form? His amazing "Landis" ability seem to have left him as well.

    But sadly its still team Sky and IMHO the boo's on every stage should be a clear message to the UCI of what people think of the situation. Take out team Sky and it would have been riveting this year.

    Not a tour that Mitchelton Scott will look back on with fond memories. But they didn't stop trying. Unfortunate crash by Adam Yates when in a winning position.

    Whether it's the amount of money they have to spend on a roster, or something else, Sky's domination of the major tours is very unfortunate. Crowd reactions remind me of the last few years of Lance Armstrong's reign.
