Dylan Groenewegen won again on Saturday after an astonishing burst of speedMore

Froome recovered to finish in a much-reduced peloton alongside Team Sky team-mate Geraint Thomas, 27 seconds behind the leaders.

Froome is attempting to become the first man to do the Giro-Tour double since 1998 and win a fourth consecutive Grand Tour. As Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas faced up to the gravel roads of stage 10 to Le Grand Bornand, Bradley Wiggins was stirring the pot back home, fuelling talk of leadership battles between Team Sky's co-leaders.

"Movistar have come here with three leading riders (Nairo Quintana, Mikel Landa and Alejandro Valverde), and with only one GC contender it becomes hard to cover all three". For one GC guy to cover all three is very hard so this gives us options. It's for other teams to attack us now.

What's more, today's stage includes 15 sectors of cobbles, but the crash came long before the first. He fell again but quickly regained contact with the leaders and finished in a group containing the vast majority of the GC contenders.

Two goals from African players earn France the 2018 World Cup trophy
Fans poured into Paris streets Monday to celebrate after France defeated Croatia , 4-2, to win the World Cup in Moscow. It's a relief, we are feeling relief, it's the second youngest team at the World Cup, and we are very proud of them".

Meanwhile the discontent over the proximity of race vehicles to certain riders grew with Trek-Segafredo rider Toms Skujins the latest to criticise the race organisation for allowing drafting during the ninth stage to Roubaix.

"There were a lot of crashes yesterday. But I guess that was the objective of reducing the team sizes, to make the racing more exciting, so we'll see". I'm great. I'm right where I wanted to be coming into the race, bar losing time on the very first stage.

"I think the race, as always, will decide (leadership)", said Froome.
