Tour of France, passion in Alsace! Unbelievable! The French here showed great enthusiasm in the day. Thousands of spectators along the route, and there are much more in the finish area.
Swiss U23 champion Lukas Rüegg in the group!
With the young Lukas Rüegg, the team Vorarlberg Santic placed his fast man in the eleven-man top group. Before that, Lukas Meiler picks up his first mountain points.
"Fall of Team Captain Schelling"
Although he can catch up to the field, he complained the pain in the buttocks area. After finished the competition, it is clarified nothing is broken, but pain enough to bit your teeth!
Lukas Rüegg gets two bonus sprint scores and prepares for the final. Then "crash" - luckily no "Vorarlberger" here. 25 teams in the wild final fight. In the sprint of the top drivers Lukas Rüegg could not really play his sprinter qualities - he is braked in the deadlock. In the final bill, he is ninth after a great stage! Dutchman David van der Poel (Corendon-Circus) wins ahead of Irishman Matthew Teggart (Team Wiggins).
