Picture This: First Blood - Chris Froome

As predicted after Alberto Contadors poor performance in yesterdays time trial he decided today was a day to test his legs, attacking on the final climb of Valmorel with just over a kilometre to go. How would Froome respond? Well it was business as usual for him as he kept tempo and slowly reeled Contador back in before bridging across and riding away from his rival to take a strong looking stage victory and the yellow jersey. Froome didn't have to ride away for solo victory today once he had brought Contador back but instead he decided to stamp his authority on the race one again and cross the line in style. It's becoming a familiar picture and one we might see on repeat over and over again in July...

  1. Given the current climate in cycling can we avoid using headlines with the word "Blood" in it?! I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw it on my screen as I thought a Sky rider had been popped!
