Stage 12: Combativity Prize

The Flying Dutchman

Steven Kruijswijk almost pulled it off today going solo for 70km. I watched as he tackled two HC  climbs in the Alps and I wanted him to take the stage. What a ride!
"I think I gave the Dutch people a great day! And that I've showed the courage to attack." - Steven Kruijswijk (awarded combativity prize).

"I knew that this would be another tough day in the saddle. Soon, I felt this would be the end of the Tour for me." - Andre Greipel

Sad that Vincenzo Nibali has left the race due to a fracture vertebrae. But what a ride to finish... imagine if he did not crash.

Le Alps, Le Course... of course
