1. Captain Smith

    @romainbardet giving it everything he’s got on a cobbled and chaotic stage 9 . He had at least three punctures and was left behind to chase the favourites . He could have lost a matter of minutes had it not been for the gargantuan effort of his teammates and finally a solo drive which put him back to his GC rivals . Bardet can dig deep and bleed , which is moving to watch . #tourdefrance2018 #tourde . . .

    @geraintthomas86 giving it full welly on stage 11 . ‘G’ has spent so much of his career in the service of others (Wiggins and Froome) . Following his win in last year’s Time Trial after which he got to wear yellow , this has been his most magnificent performance to date , outshining the strongest riders the pro-peloton has to offer . What a superb piece of riding from the charming Welshman , and w . . .
