The Next to Go PN20-28
With Soren Kragh Andersen (Sunweb) back into the peloton, it was Rudy Molard (Groupama-FDJ) who launched the next attack. Just up the road was the lone figure of Andersen's teammate, Tiesj Benoot. You can see Nairo Quintana (Arkea-Samsic) trying to decide if he should follow Molard's attack or keep his eye (and energy) on those who are closer to him in the general classification. With just 12 kilometers to the end of the stage, it wasn't that likely that enough time could be put into the Maillot Jaune to make a true difference. Conversely, with only one more stage to race, there wasn't much of a choice other than to try.
