They'd have needed the suitcase of courage for that one... good ride by Froome.
Froome is capable of real acceleration that few others can match. You start to wonder if Sky have backed the wrong horse. Pity about Valverde's mechanical, that would have been a good contest. Other than that it was a replay of the mountain stage of the Dauphine.
Speaking of mechanicals, were they all electronic shifter related? Is Goss using Shimano Di2 or Campy EPS? I can't recall so may mechanicals affecting top contenders in one stage.
