Paying Attention TDU19-17
Paddy Bevin (CCC) was paying attention as the peloton approache the second intermediate sprint of the day in Inman Valley. The race leader had been beaten at the first sprint by his closest rival, Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott). That sprint had improved Impey's comparative time by one second. However, Bevin gained that second back here. It looked like Impey wasn't sure just how quickly the sprint line was coming as they came off of a sharp left hand turn. Impey's teammate, Alex Edmonston had done his best to help out his team leader, but neither could catch the sprinting Ochre Jersey.
