Two very proud Frenchmen being interviewed on the French news this morning. What a great Tour it’s been for the French with Pinot and Péraud on the podium. It’s the first time ever that two Frenchmen will finish in the top three.
They will also take the white jersey with Pinot and the team’s classification with AG2R. We’ve also had Tony Gallopin in yellow and winning a stage, and we’ve seen the emergence of Bryan Coquard as a sprinter. All in all, six Frenchmen will finish in the top 20. Looks like French cycling has a bright future.
