Great to see French riders crossing the line in 1st and 2nd place. Hopefully one of them, Alaphilippe or Pinot, can hang on to win the GC.

It's not just the cycling with the Tour. SBS in Australia has always touted the scenery aspect also - dramatic helicopter shots of landscapes, castles, cities and villages. Some fabulous scenery in the Pyrenees last night.

Also the crowds, who go absolutely nuts on the mountain stages with smoke bombs, flag-waving and dress-ups - last night I saw something new, 5 Napoleons complete with cocked hats and full uniforms.
