No sooner did I wish for it yesterday than now it happened. After his series of second-place finishes, and thanks to incredible teamwork, Peter Sagan finally got his win today in stage 7!
Meanwhile, what I hoped against two days ago came today after another crash and without much surprise. That is, Christian Vande Velde is out, his last Tour cut short under less-than-desirable circumstances.
Then of course, the maillot jaune that yesterday went for the first time in Tour history to a South African rider remains with him today, having been passed among teammates from Simon Gerrans to Daryl Impey. And from here we move on to the Pyrenees, where it could quickly change shoulders yet again!
One response to “Enough With Second.”
