    Australia’s first stage win of this Tour. Will there be another?

  • lefthandside

    Great reporting, I missed the stage today but felt like I was there reading this. Thanks

    Bling, superb, fantastic work Sunweb. Aru….what the hell just happened? Left unsupported by his team-mates again?

    • Neal Rogers

      Valgren said he did what he could, and Aru couldn’t hold the wheel. And this little stat is certainly not down to being unsupported. https://twitter.com/letourdata/status/886257629433143300

      • Michele

        The overhead footage of the riders run into the finish certainly supports Valgren’s claims.

        Aru just couldn’t hold his team mate’s wheel.

    • Mark Blackwell

      Robbie called it well again… he noticed that Aru was too far back even 3kms from the finish and said he’d lose time and the jersey

      • jms

        Watched the replay again this morning, Robbie called it at 9.4km to go!

  • ninja

    Great to see Froomey buzzing in the post race interview – he’s a racer at heart and loved that finish, much more real than the set piece finishes the team usually set up

  • velocite

    Good description of the race, except for the bit where Matthews supposedly ‘edged out Van Avermat’. Not quite the right word – Matthews was Kittel like relative to strong competition.

    • Chucky Beans

      Also odd: can you “succumb” a jersey back to another rider? But yes, a nice description!

  • Jack R

    Nice to see Matthews get the win after all his hard work so far this tour (and would have been a shame if he didn’t win given the amount of work done by Sunweb!) Also great to see Jay McCarthy in 5th – surely it can’t be too long til we see him on the podium for this sort of stage.
