That was a rather sad showing over the final mountain stages, with only Contador and Martin making any serious attempt to unseat Froome. Bardet, Uran, Aru, and Yates seemed happy to just sit in Froome’s wheel and concede the win. It’s disappointing that so much of the peloton is unwilling to take risks.

Congrats to Matthews, it’s great to see another Aussie in Green, and while he somewhat lucked into it, he put in the hard work and it’s well deserved.
