As I mentioned, the breakaway group has gone into disrepair and now the race – on the col du Tourmalet – has one rider in the lead, seven in a chase group, two in an intermediate group, the peloton, and a whole slew of riders spit out the back.

The gaps are 0:30, 7:40, 0:15 and then a bunch of assorted times.

Reading those, the 30-second rider is ahead of seven riders who are 7:40 ahead of a couple riders who are 0:15 ahead of the peloton.

I’m done with details until the SPOILERS get posted tonight.

Check back at 9PM for the full recap and my predictions for stage 11 – if anyone of note is left in the race.
