Sqwauk-a-doodle-doo! It’s been a chaotic and fascinating second week of the 2017 Tour de France – Kittel gets into the record books, Bling hunts for green, WaWa has the Powa and Sky are getting a run for their money by the boys in the brown bibs. Your final KMs are here …
Just when you’re lulled into a ‘ho-hum, this stage isn’t much’ attitude, all hell breaks loose in this year’s Tour de France. Stage 15 was one for the break and Bauke Mollema read the script correctly and came away with his first Tour de France stage win (and Trek-Segafredo’s first in this Tour). In the GC, Chris Froome miraculously withstands an Ag2r onslaught to stay in yellow.
Another edition of Tour Tweets of the Week – packed, absolutely packed full of controversy, conspiracy theories (okay, we’re guilty of spreading one of those) and come-hither looks. We’re loving Rogue Landa, WaWa Barguil, Baby Blackbird and Mick Jagger and wondering what to think of Bidon Bardet, Rogueless Landa, and the UCI commissaires.
