The individual time trial (ITT), Maître de la discipline, Tony Martin! pushing that massive 58 tooth on a 11 rear with an average speed of 54kph! – over the 33km course. What a beast. What a course. As the French say, le site exceptionnel du Mont-Saint-Michel, it just makes a great backdrop for the ITT. At this point in the Tour the ITT usually shakes up the leader board but it seems things haven’t changed too much. I would currently put a Froome, Valverde and Contador battle on the table, right now Froome has the fight in hand. Just need some more mountains to find the true beast, the beast master will take the yellow.
