They dropped the green this morning!
Pogacar is 5:30 ahead of 3rd after week one, it's incredible.Stage 9 : Ben O'connor puts in an amazing ride to win the stage and is now in second
place in the General Classification. Pogacar is still the GC leader by 2 minutes 1 second.
Much needed rest day for tomorrow. As somewhat anticipated, Primoz and Van Der Poel
have abandoned the tour.
Stage 15: Its Sepp Kuss from Durango Colorado , first American to win a Tour De France stage
in 10 years! The 26 year old Kuss was one of Pimoz Roglic's top lead out domestiques and did
a lot of work for Roglic in last years Tour De France . Pogacar still in the lead by 5:18 and looked
as fresh as a daisy at the end of the stage today. Rest day tomorrow and a hilly stage Tuesday
with more mountains Wed, and Thurs.
Who do you have in mind? I don't think any of the usual suspects are missing.The Olympics have taken away some of the riders this year which is unfortunate. I heard a
report that a lot of the riders that left for the Olympics are doing it to try and adjust their
minds and bodies to the time change of Japan.
