MIAMI | Aaron Judge keeps the only piece of motivation he needs on his phone. It’s right there on his notes app, always atop the list for quick access. He looks at it every day and said he’s done so for months, letting it serve as the perfect provider of perspective.

But the most grueling, drama-filled day so far of this 104th Tour finished, yet again, with Froome still wearing the race leader’s yellow jersey.
