After narrowly averting disaster in the Massif Central, Chris Froome believes he is ready for the final stretch of the Tour de France with a handful of rivals breathing down his neck.The Team Sky rider leads Italian Fabio Aru, who appears to be running out of gas, by 18 seconds, and French daredevil Romain Bardet by 23, with Colombian dark horse Rigoberto Uran in fourth place, 29 seconds off the pace.Ireland's Dan Martin is fifth 1:12 behind, and Froome's own teammate Mikel Landa of Spain, who has been in ominously good form, lies sixth 1:17 off the pace.While Bardet and Aru could well lose around a minute to Froome in Saturday's 22-km solo effort in Marseille, Uran fares better riding against the clock.
