Bastille Day. The sun shone. The crowds came out to fete both a Frenchman in the mailllot jaune and a stage finish in Romain Bardet‘s home town! A classy break went up the road to play for the win, and Daryl Impey kept his head to beat Tiesj Benoot (Lotto-Soudal) in a two up sprint to claim his maiden Tour de France victoire – the first for Mitchelton-Scott in three years. There was no change on the overall as the GC guys rolled along thoroughly enjoying a lull in proceedings.
