Is Rasmussen guaranteed KOM?

I can't locate how many KOM points are left to earn. Is it possible for Pereiro to catch him?

Yes, after the rest day we have another mountain stage, BIG points plus after every climb there is points, the harder the climb the more points.

Where do you go to find out how many points each climb is worth?

17 looks so strange to give KOM points in such a flat stage.

Cat 4: 3/2/1
Cat 3: 4/3/2/1
Cat 2: 10/9/8/7/6/5
Cat 1: 15/13/11/9/8/7/6/5
NC: 20/18/16/14/12/10/8/7/6/5

There sometimes are additional points at the finish of a climbing stage and/or final climb.

I noticed he's added the polka dot helmet and shorts.
Does he have polka dot socks and shoes too?

I think Rassmussen has today clinched over Pereiro. 7 Points left on the weekend, 26 and maybe some small-modest bonus certainly not exceeding 15 points on friday, ther's not enough to cover a 50 point buffer.

He looks pretty comfortable on this climb, while Lance [and everyone else] look to be breathing heavier.

Only 3 points left tommorrow, so Lance clinches the 3rd KOM podium spot. Add that to his celebrations.
