    Robert Miller, King of the Mountains 1984, is now a bird called Phillips York.

    He's had one of those sex changes, who'd have guessed?

    Full on all day today, that was a hard stage for all involved. Great racing, which kept the GC riders on their toes all day. Froomy still in yellow and the standings in the end as it was when they started. Likely to be some gaps between the GC guys tomorrow, could be a tour defining day.

    Well, that stage lived up to all it expectations, what a race, both "G" and Richie Porte crashed badly and are out the race. Froome and Aru fall out on the climb, then team up together on the run it. Froome finish 3rd same time as the winner of the stage. Well worth watching on the highlights today if anyone missed it.

    I was up around Castle Howard, Malton and Driffield this morning with plenty of climbing, and got my ride in so I could watch the Tour this afternoon. Knackered when I got back.

    A deer once nearly wiped me out on my bike going past Allerthorpe wood on the way to Sutton on Derwent.

    The heat sure saps your strength, went through 2 water bottles and still not enough.
