Having to Chase TDF19-41
I am sure there was quite a sharp intake of breath when nearly the entire Ineos team went down with about 22 kilometers left to race. One of the riders, perhaps Gianni Moscon's (Team Ineos) carbon frame was left in pieces. As the chasers reached the final climb up the Cote de la Jailere, it was Egan Bernal (in the White Jersey) dropping back to assist Luke Rowe and Wout Poels in pacing Geraint Thomas back up to the peloton. In the end, neither of the team's leaders lost anytime to the main rivals, but they are further behind the new Maillot Jaune than they were at the start of the stage.
