Smiling for the Cameras G17-57
It was Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar) who raised his arms for the cameras at the line. As I was painting this I was reminded of the Bahrain-Merida who raised his arms at the start of the bell lap earlier in the race. What was missing then was the phalanx of cameras just across the line that are now staring back at Izaguirre clicking away. Movistar have bigger plans than just a stage win, but there are 22 teams in the race and only 21 stages available for victories. Thus far Bora-Hansgrohe, Lotto Soudal, Quickstep and Orica-Scott have wins, so Movistar was pleased to add their name to the list.
