Building on His Advantage PN20-18
It has been said that the Maillot Jaune gives you wings. Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) was certainly flying around the 15 kilometer individual time trial course today. As the last to go, he knew the time splits of everyone that had gone before (a distinct advantage give the leader of the race). While the German wasn't able to win the stage, he only missed the mark by two seconds, he was able to build on his lead over all of the pre-race favorites. It is beginning to look like he will carry yellow all of the way to Nice. And then there is the possiblity that the race will be stopped at any point along the route for fear of the spread of the Corona Virus. It happened during the Tour of the United Emirates, where the race was called with two stages left to race.
