    Don't think they have any other option than protect the yellow jersey tbh, would be an absolute dick move towards Bernal otherwise.

    Norwegian TV2 showing live from the landslide. Absolute mental scenes.

    Could be tight between Alaphilippe and Kruijswijk for podium.

    No stage winner today so Bernal doesn't get bonus seconds.

    Such a shame stage ended the way it did, but obviously the correct decision.

    Ineos all behind Egan now. Regretting noy placing a bet when I saw odds of 7-1 in the first week for outright winner!

    Kwiatkowski, my man, what is with him this tour. Just doesn't have the legs. Poels though, this is again why he's being paid top dollar. Easily my favourites 2 riders of Ineos.

    I have an unnatural dislike of team Ineos.

    Yep.

    Waiting to hear back from my TDF friend to get confirmation but it looks like tomorrow’s stage is being shortened as well looks like the first climb is out.

    Edit talked to my friend he’s at the Hotel but some of his colleagues are stuck in Tignes.

    Says unofficial but looks like tomorrow’s stage will be 60 km with the first two climbs unavailable due to landslides

    It's pretty much done anyway. Can't see anything else than a Bernal win at this point.

    Such a shame what happened to Pinot. Was probably the only one who could have changed the outcome.

    Straight to the final climb. An anticlimax to closing stage for a good Tour.

    Unreal stage, and what an amazing tour it's been so far!

    Gotta feel fro Julian, but I feel now it's on Egan's hands.

    It really is, and then you remember he"s french and then any disappointment dissipates into a chuckle.

    Yeah, absolutely tragic. Nothing would please me more than Alaphilippe dropping off the podium the silly frog.

    If you're Alaphilippe do you go for broke or try to protect the podium?

    He won't be allowed to go anywhere except backwards. I predict he'll be dropped last 15-20 km losing his podium spot to Kruijswick.

    That was fast. I thought he can hang on with stage become short.

    @RedFish what do you have against the French? The race has been much better for having French riders near the front.

    Nothing mate, I'm just winding up the anti ineos crowd, of which there are many in here. I think Alaphilippe is quite brilliant.:)

    Kruijswijk and/or Buchmann should go for it. In any manner if needed.

    I was anti INEOS when Froome was around, as I think he may be "suspect" shall we say. I don't like them now, but I don't hate them either. They haven't been strong enough to make this tour as boring as the last few, thankfully.

    Somebody needs to attack FFS. They are giving Bernal the win right now.

    Ineos is too strong, Buchmann at least tried but that gap was instantly closed.

    Congratulations Egan Bernal. First of many GT's.

    Unlucky Alaphilippe - you lit up the tour. Chapeau.

    Think Brailsfold will let Froome chase Tour for the last time next year meanwhile Bernal/Carapaz will chase Giro/Vuelta next year. After that who knows.
