However, the Welshman did, for a third straight day, hear boos as he collected his yellow jersey.

Despite having Sky teammates at the front of the peloton, once Froome got a wheel from teammate Jonathan Castroviejo, he was left all alone for several minutes until Wout Poels eventually dropped back to help him get back. "They make the riders breathe in noxious air, and they blind them", he added.

Roberts and Dumoulin, third overall, would have welcomed Nibali's help to overthrow team Sky with Thomas and Chris Froome.

Thomas won by just a couple of seconds from Dumoulin, with Bardet one second behind him and Froome a further second behind again.

The ill will toward Froome and Sky later manifested itself as booing of Thomas on the podium.

But the Sky train ripped into his lead over the remainder. What's more worrying for Sky is Dumoulin was able to back up after his efforts on Stage 11.

Lance Armstrong won an individual time trial up Huez in 2004 while wearing yellow but that victory was later stripped for doping.

"(Appealing for calm) is a step in the right direction but I think there are more measures that can be taken, for sure". On Alpe d'Huez he finished with an embattled Nibali, 13 seconds down.

After an arduous three days of mountain action, the sprinters will be pleased to see Friday's flat stage from Le Bourg-d'Oisans to Valence - a 169.5km ride.

Trump ready to go all-in on taxing Chinese imports
Earlier this year, he used national security as a justification for taxing imported steel and aluminum. The yuan dipped to a 12-month low of 6.8 to the dollar, off by 7.6 percent since mid-February.

Romain Bardet - the Frenchman is trying.

Just as team leader Adam Yates cracked at the beginning of the final climb to La Rosiere, his main support rider, Spaniard Mikel Nieve, broke clear of the breakaway and looked set for victory.

"The riders of the Tour, the champions of this race, need to be respected".

Steven Kruijswijk - not enough superlatives for the efforts of the Dutchman on Stage 12. He is now 20 minutes behind Thomas.

Franco Pellizotti, a teammate of Nibali's and the oldest rider in the Tour at 40, noted that incidents with fans on Alpe d'Huez are nothing new - such as when Giuseppe Guerini rode into a spectator taking a photo in the middle of the road in 1999.

The LottoNL-Jumbo rider almost pulled it off, only the power of Sky foiling his efforts.

Dumoulin said he didn't have to push his physical limits to catch Froome and confirmed that Thomas, now 1 minute, 39 seconds up on Froome, was strongest on an "absolutely mental" day of racing. Even as I crossed the line I said: "'Is someone still away?'"

Jakob Fuglsang - only in the top 10 because Nibali moved out from fourth with his withdrawal.
