Stage 20. Megève – Morzine.
Alaphillipe compared with Pantano in a climbing situation, perhaps fatigue related. Alaphillipe off saddle apparently weight bearing less on the handle bars than Pantano who was seated. In climbing both situations require greater weight shifting, the off saddle more than seated.
Stage 21. Chantilly – Paris Champs-Élysées
Terrific Greipel win, the downstroke PRF effectively neutralized by trunk rotation. But above all, the genuine excitement in the accomplishment!
And by the way on the women’s side, Chloe Hosking wins the criterium. How? Pro-Style Hybrid PMPC, just as the guys. Revolutionary!
