Who's Coming? TDF19-82
The break took quite a long time to get established today, and it was rather large once it did. The peloton was looking at three catagory one climbs, the final being a mountain top finish. Given what played out on the Tourmalet yesterday, it was looking like it would be another decisive day. On the first of the big climbs, the Port de Lers, it was Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) looking back over his shoulder to see who was following his attack. On his left shoulder was Julien Bernard (Trek-Segafredo) and behind him were Sebastien Reichenbach and Rudy Mollard both on Groupama-FDJ. All for were in the break to be able to help their team leaders on the final climb of the day. Should the leaders not bridge up to them, then they could race for stage honors for their respective teams.
