Stage 7 will be known as the Block Buster Stage for years to come. Not only did the wind play a factor in the race but Bora Hansgrohe sent the entire team to the front to set such a fast pace that it dropped off most of Sagan's sprinter competitors so it would clear the way for the Stage win he wants to badly. Unfortunately his chain dropped right at the end of race while sprinting. He still retained the green jersey but it is much closer competition going to Paris. Adam Yates retains the Yellow Jersey.
Thomas de Gendt attacked and stayed away for ahwile but the main contendors for the sprint finish caught him and it was a finish to watch again.
This Stage is 168 km; 2110 total climb; 880m max elevation; 9%max grade; 3 climbs; 1 sprint.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
