Fantastic performance today from Roche, in the first of a few killer days in the mountains. Finished 5th on the stage and is also up to 5th in GC. He's on the same time as Tondo, who's one place ahead of him.

Igor Anton was very unlucky to break his arm in a crash about 6km from the end, losing his leader's jersey and leaving the race.

Great ride from roche, real class to be still in with that group on the last climb. they were really travelling up that climb eh?Nibali looked out on his feet.

Eh, no I'm not actually. Tondo is on the same time as Mosquera rather than Roche.

Roche still going well, in the second of three tough mountain stages in a row. He took back over a minute on Tondo, although he lost a place to Velits, so now he's in 6th. He's only 18 seconds from 4th place though.

Few big days to go yet. Not like the last week of a Giro but tomorrow and the individual TT will leave things clearer.

The legs must be tired now as well after July.

No doubt, but he's a real fighter. I think Nibali has this one. There's another killer next saturday, but at that stage I doubt if anyone is going to lose serious time to their closer rivals. Rodriguez and Mosquero are both likely to lose a lot of time in the ITT, but Stetina and Danielson will probably make some.

I've run out of things to say about Roche. His consistency is unreal. He's the only guy who wouldn't be known as a climber to make the selection, every time. He lost time to Schleck today, 28 seconds, plus Schleck picked up a time bonus for coming second on the stage, so he's now 45 seconds down on him, in 4th place. Tondo dropped off again today.

Danielson could catch him in the TT, but at the same time, Roche could catch Mosquera and maybe Frank. The TT of his life and he could be in for a podium place. Very early days, but it's a possibility, no more than that.
