Phillipe Gilbert shares image of injury from Tour de France crash

Geraint Thomas took a huge step towards his first Grand Tour victory on stage 17 Geraint Thomas took a huge step towards his first Grand Tour victory on stage 17

But he lost the front wheel on a corner 6.5km from the end, and Alaphilippe zipped by in the polka dot jersey to collect his second stage win of the Tour.

He now leads by one minute and 59 seconds from Team Sunweb's Dumoulin, with Froome two minutes and 31 seconds back in third.

Britain's Chris Froome will now look after his team mate Geraint Thomas in the final days of the Tour de France after losing more time to the yellow jersey holder on the 17th stage. "We're trying to remain dignified, we're trying not to react, and we're trying not to get distracted by it".

"I just sprayed some water in the eyes and water in the face", added Froome.

Before that, Gilbert posted a video online explaining why he would be unable to finish the race.

French rider Julian Alaphilippe of Team Quick-Step won Stage 16 of the Tour de France after the race was disrupted for 15 minutes by protesters.

This year's Tour has already seen the likes of Froome targeted by fans, and Thomas hopes there will be no further problems over the closing stages.

It was just another bump in the road for Froome, who said after Stage 17 that he'll ride in support of teammate and overall leader Geraint Thomas.

Froome, attempting a first Giro d'Italia-Tour double in 20 years, cracked 2km from the finish when Dutchman Tom Dumoulin attacked, and slipped from second to third overall.

Friday's stage is the final day in the mountains, but has a downhill finish in Laruns. "The riders' job is extremely risky, they are taking risks every day, people should not block the road, no matter what causes they are fighting for".

"My intention was never to criticise, just to draw some attention to the fact that I was getting pretty anxious about our guys", Brailsford added.

"It's the first time I've ridden for GC (general classification)". Behind him, with less than a minute separating Froome, Dumoulin and Roglic, the battle for the podium positions will be intense.

Froome is attempting to match the Tour record of five victories shared by Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain. We recon all these stages but you never know what's coming up.

At the foot of that last effort, Quintana jumped away in impressive style followed by Martin who quickly found himself unable to sustain the pace of the twice Tour runner-up.

"I just sprayed some water in the eyes and water in the face", the four-time Tour victor said.

I'll be interested to see if the mere title of Slender Man will get folks to the theater, or if this meme has been played out. While this trailer is clearly going for some Evil Dead and Exorcist-like scares, it comes off as pretty ridiculous.
