Why didn't he take second place ahead of Evans? I know that he didn't 'have' to do so in order to take yellow but psychologically, showing Evans that he can, and will beat him, even by a wheel...

He's keeping his powder dry, giving nothing away.
It's quite a split that's developed though, on a piddly little hill...

Thought yesterday's finishing hill was more like a British type of climb. Shortish but steep, the kind Wiggins probably rides up every day if he's training in Lancs. That said he'd have lost time on that in the past so it's another weakness they've worked on. Nibali and Evans may have to try and crack him going downhill not up.

I suspect that he didn't want to pressurise Evans and endanger Froome's win, which was a decent reward for a hard day's work.

Be interesting to see what happens tomorrow in the mountains.
