Tour de France stage 11

Posted by on July 13, 2016

Julian Alaphilippe and his Etixx Quick Step teammates rode just a few hundred meters from their hotel to the sign on.



Raymond Poulidor may have stood on every step of the Tour de France podium except the top one, but he is just as popular as 5 time winner Bernard Hinault.

    Oh dear that mullet….it’s a Joe Dirt mullet!!! Awesome photos as usual! 🙂

    • Kathryn

      Did you see he tweeted yesterday he was going to cut off the mullet but the team bus was running late so he’s kept it! Oh, and I meant to credit my friend Andrea with the bulk of the photos for this stage, oops.

      • Michelle

        I bet he won’t cut it off, maybe in Paris but not yet. 🙂

        • Kathryn

          Sucks that he crashed out, but it’s incredible that he finished the stage with a broken pelvis! Such grit.

          • Michelle

            I know, these guys are a really tough bunch, makes rugby players look a bit soft…lol

            Sad he crashed because he was desperate to finish in Paris, poor guy

Got something to say? Go ahead!
