Bringing Their Man Back
The 102nd Tour de France is being as unkind to the French and the 101st was charmed. For the second time today, and once yesterday, the Frenchman who finished third in 2014, had to be paced back on to the tail of the peloton after a crash. On this trip back to the front, Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) was escorted back into the fold by his teammates Steve Morabito and Matthieu Ladagnous. A nice marker that the peloton is close is the bright red Skoda of one of the Commisares that position themselves just behind the last man of each large group and/or the breakaway on the course.
