Bonjour! Well after the longest route yesterday, Stage 8 could be called the hilliest – at least before the mountain stages. Travelling through the countryside of the Massif Central, this stage gave a hint at the contenders for the polka dot jersey – Thomas de Gendt taking the lead this time in a phenomenal ride. Meanwhile, two of my favourite riders, Alaphilippe and Pinot crossed the line together bringing them into the top three in the General Classification, all set for Bastille Day – another great day!
