Stage 9 of the Tour de France had everything – sweat, tears, crushed dreams, dreams coming true, insane inclines, heat and ice vests. It also had a game of tag for the Tour teams’s social media bods to get involved in. It almost felt like Twitter hadn’t hit the skids … Here is your Puy de Dôme Moment of Joy
Well, Stage 8 of this year’s Tour de France will be remembered … for all the wrong reasons.
Mark Cavendish, so close in Stage 7 to breaking the record for most Tour de France stage wins, crashed and left the Tour in an ambulance. A moment of pure despair for both him and cycling fans everywhere.
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.
