Tour de France 2016: Top Banana stage 11

Posted on

Where to start? In a stage of fantastic racing, of crosswinds and echelons, of alliances forged and missed opportunities, the world champion again seized the moment and left the Tour peloton with egg on its collective face.

It all came down to Peter Sagan’s audacious move in the final kilometres when the Slovak pressed hard on the front, team-mate Bodnar glued to his wheel, and the Team Sky duo of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas bridged across to make a formidable quartet that the bunch could only watch in disbelief as they pulled away.

Bearing in mind Sagan bagged yesterday’s banana, Thomas was clinging on for dear life, and Froome pooped on the Tinkoff party by going for the sprint while Sagan seemed content to gift the win to his loyal team-mate, there’s only won logical winner for our award today.

Step forward, Maciej Bodnar, the 31-year-old four-time Polish national time-trial champion, who by all rights should now have a Tour de France stage to add to his palmarès.

Small consolation, we realise, but it’s the best we can do.
