Chris Froome confirmed his absolute superiority as he won the uphill time trial from Sallanches to Megève as he rode 21 seconds faster than specialist Tom Dumoulin. He significantly increased his lead in the overall ranking. With two Alpine stages remaining, Bauke Mollema is at 3.52, Adam Yates at 4.16, Nairo Quintana at 4.37 and Romain Bardet at 4.57.
“There are two hard stages to come but luckily I have quite a lot of points of an advantage. I'll try to win a stage but the priority is the polka dot jersey. I'm tired. I've done Giro and Tour with breakaways and fights for the KOM… The legs feel it. Nothing is easy. If my rivals go away tomorrow, I'll try it too.”
