Le Tour Day 17: My thoughts

More excitement on the Tour de France yesterday. A well planned breakaway led by Team Sunweb, BMC Racing, and Dimension Data, and which Sunweb were the winners in the stage, with their rider Michael Matthews winning the stage.

Yet again my predictions were complete and total rubbish. Such failure won’t stop me from making foolish predictions for today’s punishing day in the mountains.

It’s obviously a stage for climbers. Who will prevail?

  • Chris Froome is looking strong, so I hope he’ll retain the lead of the race. It’s a hope, as his nearest competitors are just seconds behind him
  • Of the challengers, Romain Bardet looks also looks strong, and has a team full of confidence to support him
  • Rigoberto Uran is another who looks strong, thogh along with Fabio Aru are not supported by strong teams.
  • Therefore, my choice for rider of the day must come from Team Sky, and why not Chris Froome.
