Pinot going to win his first Tour stage and becomes
the first French victory.
Today's stage 8, with seven climbs, was the most exciting stage, so far, of the race. The youngest rider of this Tour is FDJ's Thibaut Pinot (22) and with a clever move passed Fredrik Kessiakoff on the climb of the Col de la Croix.
Biggest fan... Madiot!
With the 17kms left Pinot found himself excitingly alone and with the animated encouragement from Marc Madiot held on to score a fantastic French victory.
Stage 8: Belfort-Porrentruy 157.5km
Pinot brings it home!
Swiss Polka-dot cow sighting, first for me seeing this...
...and the Fall of Sammy.
