Picture This: Mont-Saint-Michel And Almost The Fastest Ever TT...

 
What better accompaniment to the frankly stunning scenery of Mont-Saint-Michel than Tony Martins winning TT performance that almost put him into the record books: 
Chris Froom put well over two minutes into Contador, Valverde and Cadel all but ending any contest for the GC barring something massive but more remarkably (even Tony Martin himself expressed surprise) after two thirds of the course Froome was two seconds quicker than Tony Martin before dropping 14 seconds in the final 10km as a headwind set in leaving him 12 seconds off Martins Pace. Lower down the pecking order many suffered badly, most notably Pierre Rolland who lost over 4 minutes to Froome. It's been an interesting day with some interesting rides but the end result could make for a dull remainder of the race but we will have to wait and see. As for the scenery? There was nothing dull about that...
