The Leader on the Road TDF19-78
Behind the break away all of the contenders of the Tour were busy eyeing each other. That left the stage as a possiblity for the break away even if the finale was up the Tourmalet. Romain Siccard (Total Direct Energie) was the next to try and escape his break away companions and vie for stage honors. With the heat climbing back up the scale in the valley, it was important to keep hydrated. Along with soigneurs and his team car, Siccard good avail himself of the support moto filled with cold water bottles. I did find it a little weird that the driver was using his left hand to pass the bottle to a rider on his right. It may be a motorcycle thing that I am just not aware of.
