Tejay in is polka dot Garden.
Tejay Van Garderen was part of a nine man break in stage 8 but was dropped up the final climb to Super Besse Sancy. Rui Costa of Movistar held on to win alone.
Van Garderen's aggressive riding and he gathered enough points to take over the polka dot jersey and also winning him the Most Combative Rider.
Escaping with Rui Costa & Cyril Gautier.
