A massive sprint has logically ended up this stage as all the teams are really close to each other in rankings. It was clear that no one was willing to show either their motivations nor goals. We could obviously see that the teams that have great sprinters were trying to hold the peloton and retain any serious "echappée" to play the victory in the final sprint. I feel like we will have one more day at least like this as all the favourites are playing it strategic so far. The Tour de France is just about to start so be ready for some real action in the coming days.
There was definitely lots of stress and tension in the peloton today and I guess there will still be some on the boat that will take us this evening from England to France...it will be interesting to live.
Well, the Tour de France has only spent two days in England but it was warmly welcomed by thousands of people along the roads. Organisation was amazing and I think people really enjoyed the show today. It's been a great experience on both sides of the Channel!
Ladies and gentlemen, the great Tour de France is still alive, so stay tuned for some more hot news!
