    Stage 20 - 125km - Amnecy > Amnecy-Semonz - KOM and 2nd place up for grabs


    This is going to be a good one to watch as they battle for 2nd place in the overall, and first place in the King of the Mountains.

    Any takers on who is going to take 2nd in this year's tour? Betting sites are making Quintana (10/11) a slight favorite over Contador (5/4) with Rodriguez (13/2) and Kreuziger (25/1) still in the hunt.

    My money is on Sagan, taking 2 hours and 30 minutes on the peloton for the stage win and the yellow yesterday.

    I love these short hilly stages, really set up an exciting stage. Rolland is after this KoM Jersey! Can't see him staying out all day though with his exertions yesterday. Looking at Quintana today, near future tour winner this lad!

    You would think team sky would do the decent thing today and let the real battle commence between 2nd to 5th..........its like watching the ego maniac Armstrong all over again.

    How many minutes did Froome take out of these two in the time trials?

    By far the strongest 3 in this years tour by the third week

    What happened to Rodriguez early in the tour? Clearly very strong now.
    Quintana has been outstanding, incredible climber.

    Froome certainly weakening, to be fair though, he really did take the race to the rest of them, unlike last years snoozefest.

    Yeah, Froome (and Porte) did a much better job at making this Tour more entertaining. Good for him.


    What about Contador......dude, I kind of feel bad for him.

    Yeah, complete disaster for Contador who was supposed to be getting stronger in the third week, right...I think he'll be back though.

    Rodriguez didn't time his form right, a good break and he should be able to win the Vuelta if he puts his mind to it. Doesn't look like there'll be much competition over there.

    I agree about Rodriguez but I think Contador is done. I don't think he will win again in a GT.

    He's got the green jersey sown up, so well done to him for that. His antics seem to amuse some people.

    Nice to see Talansky nipping in for 10th, also 2nd for the White Jersey.

    I predicted 5th for Contador so he did one better.

    Incredible Tour debút for Quintana, what a prospect.

    +1 Interesting that he has withdrawn from the Vuelta
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Yup, no vuelta for contador. Good for rodriguez i guess but no clue if he will go for that one this year.

    Rodriguez said quintana for second and him for 3rd and he was so darn right, he knows contador too well apparently.

    As some i feel bad for contador but that's how it is, if you guys notice there is a way to get rid off froome and his team in the mountains, the problem is to do it hehe... contador had the perfect position for a 1 - 2 punch when he was second and his windgman was 3rd. All the teams were in the perfect position to get minutes off Froome in stage 6, the problem was that all the teams had their own agendas and makes sense but in that stage no way froome was going to be able to answer 3 or 4 attacks in a row, and as happened, only quintana did some crappy punches and then he stopped. Probably next year this won't happen.

    Well tour is over, finally will be able to ride my bike again hehe

    Or thanking Froome for dumping Contador off the podium for them.
