Another bonkers week at the Tour de France – and we have it all and then some. From the always amazing Gruber galleries to the emotion-choked interviews and L’Equipe front pages to Pog amis, Rog love and Wout express.
Stage 14 of the Tour de France was a long (191km), hellishly hot stage that hardly had a flat bit – in fact, it had 4 cat 3 climbs and 1 cat 2 climbs … and a fair few of unclassified climbs that just added insult to injury to the riders’ legs. But that didn’t mean it wasn’t exciting. It was BikeExchange’s Michael Matthews who made a bold move off the front of the break with 50-some kilometres to go, which proved to be a stage winning move … but not without a lot of work in between. The sweat-drenched yellow jersey stayed with Jumbo’s Jonas Vingegaard, with Tadej Pogacar (UAE) and Geraint Thomas (Ineos) keeping their respective second and third positions.
Cowbells ahoy!!!! The Tour of Romandie kicked off with a technical, cobbley, punchy prologue where the biggest question of the day was road bike or TT bike?
