Tour, Stage 19: I'm Not Amused
Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) was not remotely amused by the decision to neutralized the stage at the top of the previous climb. Alaphilippe was dropped on the climb, but was already pulling back time on the descent. It will be argued for years about whether he could have pulled back enough time to save his Maillot Jaune, but now, we will never know. He will be roughly 30 seconds off of the lead with just one real day of racing left to go. It is traditional to not attack the race leader on the roads into Paris. As wild as the end of this Tour is going, even that may fall to the whims of fate in this Tour. Yesterday, the French were riding high, but today it all went wrong. At least Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale) still holds the Maillot a Pois.
