2019 Tour de France

Another Tour is over. This was the most competitive race I’ve ever seen, we didn’t know who would win until Stage 19. Usually, the winner is identified halfway through.

Egan Bernal, the youngest rider in the race, at 22, the youngest winner in 110 years, and the first Colombian and teammate to last year’s winner won the race! He took the yellow jersey, the white jersey and almost took, and probably could have if he wanted to, the polka dot jersey.

This was the first Tour I’ve watched without Paul Sherwen, who unexpectedly died last year, commentating and he was missed. I can’t complain about Bob Roll taking his place other than it being far too soon.
