One of my other moments of joy for Stage 6 of Tour de France 2023 is the power of the autobus. It’s time to tip a hat to the guys who love the flats and stick together for the high mountains.
‘Wout is in a pout.’ ‘What’s Wout doing? Is he riding for himself?’ ‘Wout isn’t looking very good this Tour.’ Blah de blah de Wout de blah – and that was just on our VeloVoices WhatsApp chats! One of my moments of joy for Stage 6 of Tour de France 2023 was Wout putting to bed all the Netflix-inspired theories of a Jonas/Wout split, bad form and a pouty Wouty, all in one looooooooooong blazing display of strength.
My moment of joy for Stage 6 of Tour de France 2023 is simply Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates). Why? For the way he rides. The attacks. The joie de vivre. The sheer damn joy of watching him in his element.
