Tour de France 2022 - Barguil et Bardet

Stage 11 was a defining stage for many reasons, not least that the Yellow Jersey changed hands and possibly decided the winner of the race itself, but you can never tell! However, it was also a great stage because we saw some wonderful performances from other riders too. Young stars and older guys who I have followed in paint and pen for some years – not least two French stars, Warren Barguil and Romain Bardet. They have always been a joy to watch – Bardet is magnificent on the descents, Barguil great on the climbs (rather a silly observation given that in order to descend, one must first climb – I think that they’re all brilliant climbers!) Anyway, the men both took their turns at showing just how good they are yesterday, firstly Warren Barguil attacking the breakaway on the Col du Galibier…

Secondly, a superb attack by Romain Bardet, who ended the day in second place on the General Classification. A result that must bring joy to many French fans’ hearts. Come on! Allez allez! 🙂

    Talking of descents – what a rider that Pidcock is! He made the others look like amateurs on that descent yesterday! (Looked extremely dangerous though!)

      Incredible Mike! I have always admired Bardet but young Tom gave a descenders’ master class yesterday! I think those two stages are among the most exciting I have ever seen. So much to enjoy, truly amazing sport!
