Helping Hand TDF19-39
There are multiple interpretations of this title, and they all apply. First is the sticky bottle, that gives a short tow for the rider grabbing the bottle. Secondly, the information and nutrition from the team car can be a life saver of help. And finally, while Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) went on the attack, he needed the assistance of Alessandro De Marchi (CCC) if he wanted to win the stage in Saint Etienne.
