Sir Dave Brailsford has told ITV Sport that his riders need to get back on the road and try again after a disappointing day for Richie Porte and Team Sky.
Team Sky's Richie Porte is looking forward to the prospect of leading his fellow riders into the mountains.
British rider Geraint Thomas has said Team Sky are enjoying this year's Tour, despite the loss of Chris Froom early on.
Team Sky have terminated the contract of Jonathan Tiernan-Locke with immediate effect following confirmation of an International Cycling Union anti-doping violation.
Chris Froome is sending Richie Porte tactical titbits as the 2013 Tour de France champion bids to help his Team Sky colleague and close friend succeed him in the yellow jersey in Paris.
