Le Tour Day 21: Froooomeeey Day

Yesterday’s time trial in Marseille, stage 20 of the Tour de France, all but determined the final race positions.

I’d predicted Chris Froome as both the stage winner and to beat his challengers. Only half correct. Froome crossed the line in third place, just six seconds behind the winner, though soundly beating his challengers. It’s surprising to realise that Chris Froome has not won a stage on this years tour.

My final predictions,

  • Chris Froome to win the tour – stating the blindingly obvious
  • Who’ll win the final prestigious sprint to end the tour? The winner needs a committed team to deliver him to close to the finish. Team Lotto Soudal are that for team mate and sprinter, Andre Greipel.
