Coming Back PN20-13
Bryan Coquard (B&B Hotels-Vital Concepts) had a poorly timed mechanical with just nine kilometers left to race to La Chatre. He had the help of his teammate, Frederik Backaert, to pace him back through the race caravan and back into the rear of the peloton. Almost as soon as he joined the the lead group he was involved in a crash that left him on the side of the road. While he wasn't seriously injured, it did ruin his chances to vie on the stage win. Not his best day on the bike, although probably not his worst either.
