Via @cyclingtips… “On the second ascent of the Arthurs Seat climb Froome emerged from the bunch at the top once again, in search of more KOM points, and it was the former New Zealand national road champion Joe Cooper that followed. Cooper attacked over the top and Froome responded, the pair opening up a gap of 30 seconds.
With overall leader Peter Kennaugh in the bunch behind, Froome wasn’t inclined to help Cooper with the pacemaking. He sat on the Kiwi’s wheel for the entirety of the final lap before punching away at the base of the Arthurs Seat climb with less than 3km to race.” #BTMFD #SunTour
