Baring a calamity , it looks like Froome is on course for his 4th Tour de France win which of course would  put him in the exclusive club of mulitple Tour winners. .

This years race has proven to be more exciting than recent years with the time gaps still tight going into the last couple of days . The ITT tomorrow will be the decider ,no doubt. .

Been a fantastic tour, really enjoyed it. I've been willing Bardet to succeed as I'm not really a big fan of Froome, especially his style on the bike. Barguill has been superb and the green jersey comp has been great - such a shame that kittel went out like he did, not forgetting the sagan/cav controversy.

Worst bit for me though was stage 12, we were in France and just 10k from the route and didn't get to see it as the wife needed an urgent Drs appointment for a viral infection - gutted.

A pity that you didn't manage to catch the peloton when you were in France , but I suspect you will get the opportunity again in the future. .

I would agree that this Tour has been very good with plenty of excitement supplied by the likes of young Bardet and wee Barguil , the next generation and of course young Sean Yates who has managed to retain the White Jersey.

Personally, l would like to see Froome win because he is 'British' , I understand completely what you mean about his 'style' but I still think he deserves to get the win depending on the TT of course which , could be one of the more exciting TT's from recent years. .

Well, barring calamity its his fourth win. Great ride too by Sean Yates & Dan Martin

That climb on the TT course was a bit of a brute - I was sweating and building up lactic acid just watching them go up that.

I see that CF has alluded to riding the Vuelta in 4 weeks - should be interesting to see if he can retain form and whether he is riding for himself. I'd like to see him have a go at the Giro which for me is the best GT, I'm going to really try with the Vuelta but it often leaves me a bit bored in all honesty and the scenery just doesn't match France or Italy

Essexmark:
Best tour for sometime imho. Thought Froomey was superb. Really interested in how does at the Vuelta; if he wins it I understand he'll be the first to do Tour/Vuelta double since Hinault in '78 I think it was
