Froome started the day just two seconds ahead of a trio of riders and with most of this top rivals within a minute's distance.But after most of them struggled through a hilly stage and then toiled on the race's first summit finish, Froome looks to be in command of a race that he has finished as runner-up on three occasions.Froome increased his two-second race lead over Tejay van Garderen to 10 seconds.
