Working for the Sprinters T18-115
As the peloton rode back up the Champs Elysees it was being led by a combination of riders from three different teams all hoping to bring their sprinter over the line first. Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ) was hoping to take another stage, and to be the first Frenchman to win on the cobbles of this famed avenue in decades. Behind the bleu, blanc and rouge jersey were Peter Sagan's teammates of Bora-Hansgrohe and Christophe Laporte's Cofidis teammates. The green banner announces the intermediate sprint, but I have no memory of seeing that being contested.
