Chris Froome came in five seconds ahead of the closing peloton. Add to that a four second bonus for finishing second on the day, he added nine seconds to his overall lead. The question remains, did he expend too much energy for what turned out to be a very marginal gain? Tomorrow the peloton finishes atop Mont Ventoux, did he tire himself before that obstacle? One thing can be said, he certainly isn't racing by the numbers or like a robot. It is nice to have a race be unpredictable, it certainly is a lot more exciting that way.
