July 18 / Stage 16 / Two guys, but Sagan…

The stage today had an outstanding possibility. Two good riders from the same team got away by themselves. Seldom do they let one good one away. Almost never 2. For a long while it appeared they had a good shot, but at this time in the tour, with a stage that is a good one for the sprinters, there are just too many teams without a win to not work extra hard at avoiding a breakaway win.

Despite an impressive display of power, Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step) couldn’t offer teammate Julian Alaphilippe the win that it looked like he might get a couple of days ago when he crashed on the downhill of Mont Ventoux.

On Stage 19 last year 2 riders from the same team pulled of one of the most remarkable strategies I’ve ever seen in a tour stage. It’s complicated, so I’ll just encourage you to read the story by clicking on the poster below so you can read it for yourself.

From there can link to a larger image of the poster.

Joel Ouellette, Kyle Ward were collaborator on the print.

Peter Sagan won todays stage, but we were kind of rooting for a last ditch effort from the team of Dimension Data. The South African team racing on Nelson Mandella Day and winning would have been really nice.

It is worth showing Steve Cumming’s poster from Stage 12 of 2015 when from the South African team won on Mandela Day. We were screaming for him. A great read if you click on the image.

Joel Ouellette was a collaborator on both of these posters highlighted. Hmmm.
