2018 Tour de France

This is the first time in 25 years that I didn’t watch the entirety of the Tour de France, thanks to our vacation. But I caught every stage since getting home.

It was a good one! The course was interesting, most of the big sprinters were eliminated in a single stage in the mountains, Peter Sagan won the green jersey yet again, and Chris Froome didn’t win. He finished 3rd, his teammate Geraint Thomas won and is the first from Wales and the first UK-born rider to win. I think this is only the second time I’ve seen a teammate usurp the team leader.

Looking forward to next year!
