This Tour has been aggressive. TV is a stage hunter although in 2011 he aspired to be a GC guy due to a breakaway time advantage. He hunts for wins in the mountain stages mostly. They have been fast this year and contested, either Saxo, Sky, or Movistar has not given an inch to the breaks for the most part. He is a decent rider, but he, nor anyone else can fend off 3 strong GC teams trying to bring back the break. He attacked on one stage and was brought back to heel within minutes. He doesn't have the legs to do anything about it. Now that Froome has laid down the law it may be possible for a break to get a stage, but Contador is a proud guy. I don't see him giving up although the fight is over.
Tomorrow may be a good stage for TV, but I suspect it may be fast. Everyone will be on edge waiting for a move, which may not come tomorrow, but that may doom the break. Maybe GC guys call a truce tomorrow.
