I don't really know why he put in a big effort today though, since he has such a huge lead.
I have a hunch he is gonna really pad the crap out of his lead and possibly win the tour by 9-10 minutes or so. I would if I was him knowing it may be my last race for awhile. 5 days left, another TT and a few more mountain finishes, he could grab another 3 minutes easily. Might as well go out with a bang and absolutely own the race without mercy at this point.
