And that feels like a decent place to end today's live. I'll be back from the slightly later time of 14:00 BST on Sunday for the final knockings of stage 15, a relatively flat 222km race from Tallard to Nimes which should end in a bunch sprint.
Geraint Thomas has already said he's pretty tired and expects to spend most of the day sheltering in the peloton. Here's how he sees the race shaping up:
"I can't see anything other than a bunch sprint in Nimes. The General Classification riders and their teams will be taking it easy after a couple of tough days in the mountains. For the sprinters' teams of Andre Greipel and Marcel Kittel though, this will be a day to be near the front trying to set up their man. There's only two other stages for the sprinters to shine and with a rest day to follow, they can afford to go full gas."
