Froome virtual champ

FINHAUT-EMOSSON, Switzerland 16 (AFP) – Chris Froome said his rivals were battling for only a podium finish after putting time into everyone except Richie Porte on Wednesday’s first of four Alpine stages.

Froome finished the 184.5km 17th stage from Bern to Finhaut-Emosson in Switzerland in 11th place, alongside his former Sky teammate Porte.

But the race leader gained time on all his other rivals and afterwards he said he felt they were riding to beat each other.
