Jul 09 2015 Published by under BikeMonkey, Cycling


Eritrean Daniel Teklehaimanot takes the climbers jersey after being on a three-rider breakaway for most of the stage.

Hope he can stay with the climbers on the big mountains to come!

    He and the other two dudes in the breakaway made some deals. They let him take the polka dot points, and he let them go for the sprint points and cash bonus. (For non-TdF aficionados: This doesn't take anything away from him: deals are made over all kinds of shittio like this in the TdF.)

    The finish was fucken ridonculous. The yellow jersey--Tony Martin--caused a substantial crash within the last kilometer by touching wheels, and ended up breaking his collarbone and is out of the tour. Looked like a fucken squirrely Cat 3!

    Won the mountain classification in this year's Dauphine too.

    He racks up some sweet breakaway time too. This could be a good KOM year.

    Thrilled for Daniel, gutted for Tony Martin, and I miss Cancellara already.
