TdF 2019 - Stage 8 SPOILER ALERT!


Tejay Van Garderen a no-starter for stage 8. Not really surprised as he looked bad after his crash early in stage 7. Bad luck, riders bunched early on, coming off a roundabout and everyone goes through a pinch in the road with the raised section in the centre. Often slow speed crashes like this are the ones that do the most damage.

Stage 8 is a mid-mountain run of 200kms. with 4,000m of climbing through wine country. Nice weather, pretty scenery and hopefully exciting racing.
