The Last Chance TDF19-117
For those who aren't sprinters, today was the last chance to win a stage in the 2019 Tour de France. Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) had come to the Tour not to win the race (something he has done in all three grand tours) but to win a stage. At the start in Albertville today he had yet to accomplish that feat. So it was that he was off the front with just six kilometers left to climb. At least one countryman found the Italian and literally flew the flag for Italy. Hopefully, Nibali can do it figuratively.
