Manse Downfall: Saganator, Pantano & Wrong place wrong time I guess








Favorite Peter Sagan tried in vain, without any help from his breakaway companions, to bridge the gap to Ruben Plaza Molina. At one moment his bike almost flipped on him, but kept the bike upright. At this moment, I was thinking of the Joseba Beloki crash of 2003. He had to take chances to win and he completed the descent without a scratch for his 5th second place. He rides with an unwanted curse - as the strongest rider he is the marked man...



I felt good today, very hard to go for win. Everybody look at me and stayed on my wheel.

He is by far the strongest rider of the this Tour de France. Everyone races against him. A Cancellara problem. Not easy to do. I'm very happy to have him.

Here's Saganator's hair raising and risky descent... buckle in.




















The Manse descent almost claimed Geraint Thomas, scary moment watching him bounce off a lamppost and into a ditch... and survived without damage. One of Froome's trusted lieutenants dodges a bullet and Froome and company is happy to have him for the Alp stages.









The crash...







The Return...

utterly amazing.







Jarlinson Pantano Gomez...




Today is Colombia Independence Day and close with extra fireworks as Jarlinson Pantano chased valiantly for a fine performance...



Everything went well on the downhill and I really dug hard to try and get back on terms with the guy in the front. But it was impossible.

A very funny moment...
