Stage 9 / “7 Mountain Breakaway” / 2012

It is almost impossible for us to root against a breakaway. Period.

Honestly, they seldom win.

Sometimes you want the breakaway to teach the peloton a lesson about lollygagging along.

Sometimes you want it to be someone who comes out of nowhere to win their first Tour de France stage win.

Sometimes the French haven’t won a stage in a while, and you want it to just be someone French.

Sometimes it is a team that hasn’t won a stage.

Sometimes it is just kind of miraculous.

Today was the lesson time, 1st win, French, miraculous kind of day when the breakaway survived over a 7-mountain stage.

You can read the whole story of the stage and this poster by clicking here. Note the part about mice.

Some posters you like because they were a first love representing a moment that just sticks in your head. Our second place poster is surely one of those.

You need to read the story below about the day. It is one of THE crashes we’ve ever seen on the Tour.
