First mountain stage and Froome is zooming along - he has a six minute lead over Nibali!
Luckily for him, Der Panzerwagen crashed early and is out with a busted collarbone. Those crashes are extraordinary - a ripple spreads through the peloton like human dominoes.
I'm glad that the Manx Missile won a stage. He spoke at the Help for Heroes ride I did last year, with his lovely wife Peta.
