Today was the one






So glad Rigo Uran is back in the win column edging Warren Barguil in today's horror stage. The team in green argyle put in all together in a very eventful day.

"Everyone has seen the nine stages of work that every rider on this team has put in. Rigo's win today was a  reward for all of that effort. Every day, whichever rider was meant to go into the break, committed 100% to that team plan. I was sure that if we did exactly the team plan every day it would pay off. It could have been any day. Today was the one."
- Simon Clarke

























"Richie lost it on one corner - it was so slippery,  I guess the organizers got what they wanted. It was so slippery under the tress. I was very, very lucky to get away as lightly as I did."
- Dan Martin




















Massive ride for Warren Barguil. Second on the stage and KoMs leader.
















Going into the rest day, the top ten is starting to look more and more interesting...
