Tour de France 2016: second victory for Sagan in a crazy stage
The eleventh stage of the Tour de France 2016 a quiet day was expected path of Montpellier. And it is that the wind has been one of the major players, with teams like Tinkoff or Trek that took advantage of the occasion to launch the career and become famous fans to break the peloton.
The situation did not catch anyone’s favorite walk changed, so only served to hunt down the two escapees men of the day: the French Arthur Vichot and Leigh Howard. With the peloton regrouped and no longer want to build battle, teams of the sprinters took control in front of the peloton and seemed thing made the sprint in Montpellier.
But Peter Sagan has an ace up his sleeve kept. Slovak attacked by a teammate Maciej Bodnar. And two of them were joined by not one but two Sky, Geraint Thomas and leader Chris Froome. The movement caused some chaos and caught on because no one took responsibility for pulling the front of the large group. Movistar expected to continue doing the work as teams of the sprinters and these opposite. Between them, the house unswept.
The top four sneaked into goal and so Peter Sagan added his second victory in this Tour de France 2016 after his victory in the second stage. And Froome, with the bonus of its second position and with the 5 segunditos that scratched, is still more of a leader and demonstrates that if it goes well out of his depth, why not do where is supposed to mark differences.
