Chris Froome Can't Get Comfortable in Yellow

Stage 16 Chris Froome Can't Get Comfortable in Yellow
Galena Nuncio | 17 Julio, 2017, 15:54

By the time the Team Sky rider had changed wheels he was almost a minute back, and - provisionally at least - out of the race lead. Teammate Michal Kwiatkowski gave him his wheel.

With the day's main climb beginning, Sergio Henao and Mikel Nieve helped Froome as he battled to rejoin the main group, with Landa dropping back to help him complete the task ahead of the top of the descent, with 33 kilometres still to ride.

Two-time champion Alberto Contador went down twice, while second-place Fabio Aru lost one of his Astana teammates when Dario Cataldo was forced to retire with a broken wrist after a crash in the feed zone midway through the stage.

The 30-year-old Quick-Step rider finished the day fifth overall at 1min 12sec behind race leader Chris Froome after snatching 14 seconds in a typically bold late attack, 12km from the finish.

Stage victor Mollema had been a member of a strong escape group comprising 28 riders, including Katusha's Tony Martin who launched a trademark attack from 65 kilometres out.

Statistic, quote and fact of the day after the 15th stage of the Tour de France, a 189.5-km ride from Laissac-Severac L'Eglise on Sunday.

"Everybody was on their limit on the last two climbs. I think it's great that the fans are getting so into it and involved".

Neither of these competitions is mathematically out of reach, but the odds of either jersey changing hands now are little bit like that scene from Dumb and Dumber where Lloyd interprets Mary's "one in a million" odds of them ever getting together in the most positive way possible. You can't ask your team mates to do everything.

"At this stage you can go insane about focussing on the top 10 and lose track of the process so I'm just trying to do the best bike race I can every day and see what naturally happens". "After this, we'll see what the last week holds and what I can do in the Alps".

"I am happy with my legs and now I'm looking forward to the rest day", he said. "But I made it!"

The country will also deepen financial reforms by improving financial regulation coordination and shoring up weak links in supervision.

"I think that the particularity of this Tour de France is that there are so few mountain stages that every single one of them is raced flat out", he said. That was a big goal for me. I needed a chance, but a lot of teams wanted to go up the road today.

I did the first climb full gas, trying to bridge to the first group. He skipped the Rio Olympics, the U.S. Open and everything else in an attempt to try to get healthy.

"It was a long time riding alone". It was close to the chases at the end.

"Going from fourth to third is a big, big step, and from third to first is an even bigger step, but Dan's a fighter and even if it's always going to be hard for him to win the Tour, he definitely believes he can win it".

Sunday's 189.5km stage is perhaps the most handsome on this year's race, which organisers believe will showcase "exceptional landscapes that highlight the charm of France" as it passes through the stunning Massif Central mountain range.
