Le Tour de France Stage 6

04. July 2013 - 4 years, 5 months and 6 days ago

Stage 6 of the 100th Tour de France began in Aix-en-Provence and stretched 176.5 kilometers to the city of Montpellier. The course was flat, hot, and windy with the peloton's speed being pushed by team leader, Orica GreenEdge. The final sprint came down to Lotto Belisol's Andre Greipel and Cannondale Pro Cycling's Peter Sagan. In the end it was Andre with an ideal team lead-out who took the stage win.    “I told my team to wait as long as possible," Greipel explained to Cycling News. "We came to the front with about 2km to go and everyone could see that we had some horsepower. I’m really proud of the team today.”

Stage 3 was the last of the stages held in Corsica, and ran 145.5km from Ajaccio to Calvi.

Coming into the last straight away, Gerrans was led out by teammate Daryl Impey and launched his sprint at 200 meters to go. Able to hold off a charging Peter Sagan, Simone Gerrans took the win in a photo finish!

Le Tour de France Stage 2

01. July 2013 - 4 years, 5 months and 10 days ago

Stage 2 of the Tour de France traversed the Corsica mountains and ended in a short uphill where RadioShack Leopard Trek’s Jan Bakelants held off the sprinters and won his first Tour de France stage. "I could see in the final that it’s going to happen and I knew I would probably also take this yellow jersey. Maybe it will be the first and the last time in my career, but today I wear it. I saw in the last 500 meters that I still had a gap and I told myself, ‘Come on, hold this. It’s going to be the nicest day of your life!’ And then I did it,” he said.
