Bonjour! Well, what a terrific stage? So exciting, with a cat and mouse finish reminiscent of a track race, three riders waiting for each other to start the sprint to the line. The three in question, Simon Yates, Pello Bilbao and Gregor Mühlberger had been duking it out through the mountains in a lively descent, so the climax at the finish was terrific. The eventual winner was Simon Yates, who took his first Tour de France stage win, completing his collection of Grand Tour stages. Fantastic!
