    Oh! Didn't see it myself but then there is so much happening.

    Rain for the cobbles?

    One week in and I'm fairly decided this is not going to be Froome's year. He lost too much time on day 2 with his fall. Plus even though he won the Giro he was not the strongest rider in that race - only the cleverest. There are too many competitors this year who are much stronger than the Giro field. He won't be able to surprise all of them like he did in the Giro.

    If I was a betting man my money would be on Landa. Still, cobbles today will thin a few possible winners out.

    Weather forecast good - Exciting Stage 9 ahead and after that it will be 'mountain crunch time'

    Froome is only 7 seconds behind Landa.

    I am not even going to attempt a prediction
