A New Jersey TDF19-103
Just like the Colombian up the road, Nairo Quintana, Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale) was finding much better legs in the Alps than they had in the Pyrennes. Bardet didn't get over the Col du Galibier first, but his second over the top had him trading in his team kit for a new Maillot a Pois. This is the first time the jersey has changed hands in fifteen days. Bardet had hope to content for the Maillot Jaune, but he is a bit too far back for that. His other goal has been the Maillot a Pois and a stage victory. He was a minute late from the latter, but he did manage the former. This is still a huge Tour for the hometeam French.
