    And I really didn't want to see something like that ever. Not what we expected from this stage.
    A thing like that can brake you down for the rest of the tour.

    What the hell happened there today and why has Quintana got 7 seconds deducted from his finishing time?

    Mollema got out of this craziness the best and is now punished by the Jury imo.

    Was that the craziest finish to a tour stage you've ever seen? Froome running up Vontoux.... madness. I'm thinking with the race distance shortened that it led to spectators moving down the mountain to the new finishing area which led to overcrowding. I mean it got very tight in between spectators. The drama of it all. Poor Dan Martin got cuaght out big time.

    Hire the Spanish Guardia Civil to regulate the crowd and within a week no more supporters will interfere with the race :)

    @Gavin craziest finish ever!

    @Bram Quintana got penalised for grabbing hold of a spare wheel on the neutral service motorbike

    If he was penalised the time was added not deducted. The jury took the times at 1 km before the finish so just before the incident involving Froome, Porte and Mollema. Mollema clearly was done wrong here but luckily the dutchies did amazing today with Tom's win and Mollema's rise to 2nd in the gc...

    They just showed live onboard pictures a few minutes ago, so it seems they are working on it. I guess the weight is the biggest issue.
