I’ve settled on my schedule for watching the Tour de France on TV. It’s not to begin sitting in front of the TV until after 2.0pm. If I miss the live action, there’s always the summary from 7.0 to 8.0pm.
Yesterday, I dragged myself away for some essential gardening. Today, I’ve other plans.
Ok, schedule set. So, how did my thoughts on yesterday pan out. Not too far off, actually. Geraint Thomas retained the overall tour lead, and Mark Cavendish made a strong attempt to win the stage, coming in fourth.
What do I think today’s likely outcome.
- Peter Sagan for the stage win
- Geraint Thomas to retain the overall lead. Having got it the yellow jersey, methinks the Sky team will want Geraint to keep it for another day.
