How tough is Tony Martin? Sure, he struggled throughout Stage 2 overnight and is over 17 minutes off the pace already in 192nd place. But let’s not forget the guy lost more skin than a shedding taipan in a nasty crash on Saturday and was stretchered off the course during Stage 1, unconscious, into an ambulance. Yet he rocked up to the start in Bastia, covered in bandages, to roll out for Stage 2. I know time triallers are a sadistic bunch, but wow. Respect to you, sir.
