Let's hope Froome rides the TT of his life today.

Holy crap...Froome is on a tear!! 40" up on Quintana after 12km.

He has also caught Chavez for 2 min.

This race is far from over!!
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Gap will be over 2' to Quintana....

Nairo still has a decent time gap, but the profile tomorrow is brutal...

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Still a pretty comfortable lead, but by no means a lock. Tomorrow is gonna be AWESOME.

Quintana, Froome and Contador all did what they had to do today. Tomorrow is going to be big! Froome and SKY have a lot to do if they want to pull this off. Quintana probably has the strongest team around him. SKY next. I'm not sure I see how SKY's usual tactics can break Movistar. Can Froome get strong enough late on the final time to put 80 seconds into Quintana? (It's hard to imagine they will not be alone at this point.) That final climb is 14 miles at 5%. Ideal Froome territory, though 3900' suits Quintana.

Should be good!

I think Ben hit a key point....that final climb seems like it is ideal for Froome. But he'll need to go early, both in terms of the time he needs and also to wear down Quintana.

And the one thing we know from July is that Quintana knows how to ride Froome's wheel....

I wonder how much Contador has left in his tank for tomorrow? He seemed gassed the few stages toward the end. Hope he can put some strong attacks in tomorrow to wear down his competition.

Quintana will be a tick on Froome's back wheel. Can Froome drop him? I doubt it.

I think Contador is secure from those behind him but i doubt he will be able to do anything to Froome and Quintana. I'll bet he will try but when it becomes apparent it isn't happening, he will back off and land the third podium spot fairly easily. (And between Movistar and SKY, AC will know in less than a kilometer he doesn't have it.)

A mechanical would make things interesting, too.
