Hmmm... it is a tight GC ladder. Ineos sitting pretty. Sublime attack by Porte. Bahrain Victorious stringing stage wins together - they would be a happy camp, I'm sure, after a relatively quiet phase. Even have Jack Haig at 34 seconds. 

 1 Richie Porte (Aus) Ineos Grenadiers 25:28:06

2 Alexey Lutsenko (Kaz) Astana-Premier Tech 00:00:17

3 Geraint Thomas (GBr) Ineos Grenadiers 00:00:29

4 Wilco Kelderman (Ned) Bora-Hansgrohe 00:00:33

5 Jack Haig (Aus) Bahrain Victorious 00:00:34

6 Miguel Angel Lopez Moreno (Col) Movistar Tea 00:00:38

7 Ion Izagirre (Spa) Astana-Premier Tech

8 Ben O'Connor (Aus) AG2R Citroën Team 00:01:00

9 David Gaudu (Fra) Groupama-FDJ 00:01:12

10 Aurelien Paret-Peintre (Fra) AG2R Citroën Team 00:01:17

Today should be a thriller. 

Will Richie be able to hold on to yellow or will he pay for going very deep yesterday? 

Those who did not do very much yesterday like Geraint might be stronger today.

And then there is Louis.. will he hang on for a top 20 or maybe even a top 15?

Well done to Richie... not bad at all for a 36 year old "domestique"... very happy for him

G up to his own tricks again.... great rider, general good bloke and habitual crasher.

3x Ineos and 3 x Aussies in top 10.

And Louis desperately hanging in to stay in the top 20. Well done. 

A shocker by Seb Kuss who looked so good at times.

Louis 17th!! 

Best result in a while in a proper quality stage race. Ahead of NQ, G Martin, Sepp Kuss. I wish he will learn not to ride at the back of the bunch!!! So much more stressful to close gaps, no luxury to drift a little towards the back, etc, etc. 

I see "pretty face" Aru was 26th.

It could be that he’s too nice and easily bullied into riding at the back; who knows? Contrast that to Pogacar, who is younger than Louis, but will be much closer to the front.

I speak from hearing some Pros talking about fighting for position in the peloton.

Porte looks a lot leaner than I have seen him for a while

He enjoys the shorter stage races as well

A real pro 

I like him

Ineos seems to bring the "best" out of a rider. How long before Poels and Landa go back as workers.
