Hunting in the Mountains ToC19-11
After a large breakaway had been caught before getting in to the mountains of today's stage, these two got off the front by themselves. With 100 kilometers yet to go, Alex Hoehn (USA Cycling) and Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck-Quickstep) built up over a ten minute lead on the following peloton. It may be too strong of a word to say that the peloton was chasing the break down. Hoehn, had gone over the first two climbs of the day getting the maximum King of the Mountain points. Should the pair be able to stay off the front over the rest of the days climbs, he stands a good chance of pulling on the next KOM polka dot jersey.
