Throughout the Tour de France, Australian professional cyclist Richie Porte will be checking in. Here is his latest entry, as told to ESPN contributor Rupert Guinness:Stage 16: Moirans-en-Montagne to Berne, Switzerland - 209kmMuch has been said about the tactics of Movistar in this Tour de France, and a lot about what Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde may do before the race finishes on Sunday.I get asked it a lot; and yes before the Tour started I did question how much Quintana could improve on what I saw when we both raced at the Volta a Catalanya in Spain in March. But with the Colombian placed fourth at 2:59 to British Tour leader Chris Froome (Sky) before Tuesdays second rest day, and his Spanish teammate Alejandro Valverde fifth at 3:17, by no means do I rule out either with five days left to race - including four in the Alps.Firstly, its not my place to publicly criticise their tactics or whatever. Nor would I. We all go into a race - and not just the Tour - with varying tactics and strategies; but no matter how well we have put a plan in place, we have to be flexible enough to vary it to match the race.Nairo and Alejandro - they are going to attack. No way weve seen the last of them. I have the utmost respect for who they are, what theyve done, and will still probably do in this Tour.Sagan claims stage 16The four days in the Alps after Tuesdays rest day and before Sundays finish in Paris are massive for them and everyone. That places a lot more importance on the rest day in Berne where stage 16 finished.The next four days after are the most crucial time of the race. They are the hardest in the Tour in succession. So it will be nice to have a little mental and physical break on Tuesday.Alps could derail Froomes Tour bidAt the same time, you cant just shut it down. Do that and the body can find it is hard to get started again. But after the last few days of racing, which have been really hard, I believe everybody in the peloton is looking forward to the rest day.Considering all that, I am still quite upbeat. The next four stages are all about the legs. Physically I feel great. I havent weighed myself, I have just eaten what I have needed to eat. More than anything, the most important thing is staying healthy.The Alps will be a huge chance to take time back and fight for the podium - the best I am rested, the best I can be.I think I have the form to do it. I know I am not the only rider believing that a podium finish in Paris is still a possibility. A bottleneck of riders is still vying for a top three podium finish. The fight for those places should still be on a knifes edge. There will be long-range attacks - who-dares-wins stuff for that.Froome is sitting well in the lead and has most things under control. It remains to be seen if he and Sky defend it, or what we can do to fight back.
