After being caught almost on the line in Stage 11 he finally got his revenge and a stage victory. Time trials are not the most interesting race to watch, but they did a great job by having the start and finish in the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. This is the football stadium of the Marseille and not actually a velodrome anymore. The main drama of the day was would Bardet hang on to a podium spot. He is a bit rubbish at the TT and had Landa just over a minute behind. In the end he gave the crowds in the stadium some drama by hanging on by just 1 second! Barguil seemed more interested in smiling and waving to the crowd rather than hanging on to his 9th place, and he duly lost it to Contador who had a really good TT. Not much else to say really. Froome came third to seal his 4th TdF title, this time without winning a single stage.

Bit of shuffling at the top, but Heartthrobs01 holds on to top spot, but previous champ Superfish is making his move, and is now only 169 points behind. Last nights big mover was Lada Gaga up a massive 91 places from 163rd to 72nd place. No change at the bottom with Dai the Kilt maintaining his negative lead in the Lantern Rouge comp.

Short report today, am exhausted…
