It has been a bit dull, but then that's the same with any sport when one team is so dominant. Sky have been superb.
A few years ago it was set up for, and dominated by, the climbers. It has swung a little the way of the TT riders now, provided they can actually keep up in the mountains. There hasn't been much mountain action this year. Maybe they should consider returning to time bonuses for mountain stage wins, just to keep those stages interesting. They could also have more mountain top finishes, rather than sending them over the top and then down 25 kms to the finish.
Having said all that, Sky and Wiggins would still have won. Good effort by their whole team - but RS-Nissan are still top of the Team's Classification.
